Theo Jansen’s Kinetic Sculptures

We love these weird and wonderful examples of sustainability expressed through contemporary art. Theo Jansen’s intricate creations, he calls them “kinetic sculptures,” have roamed London’s Trafalgar Square, the streets of MadridNorth Adams Massachusetts, Tokyo, Taipei, and points in between. In 2007, he spoke at a TED conference about his “self-propelling beach animals” made of “recycled plastic bottles.”
