WALKING BY THE WIND....PASSEANDO COM O VENTO...

When I saw on tv years ago, amazing sculptures walking by the wind on the beach I was enchanted, amazed! I would like to share with you those wonderful kinetics sculptures of the artist THEO JANSEN . Click on the artist's name to see amazing videos. (I did the same post in March 02, 2008).

Quando vi pela tv anos atrás, incríveis esculturas se movimentando pela praia impulsionadas pelo vento fiquei encantada, impressionada! Gostaria de compartilhar com você estas maravilhosas esculturas cinéticas criadas pelo artista THEO JANSEN. Clique no nome do artista para ver vídeos incríveis. (Fiz este mesmo post en 2 de Março de 2008).

Theo Jansen









Theo Jansen (He was born in 17 March 1948 in Scheveningen, in the Netherlands ) is an artist and kinetic sculptor living and working in the Netherlands. He builds large works - "Strandbeest" - which resemble skeletons of animals which are able to walk using the wind on the beaches of the Netherlands. His animated works are a fusion of art and engineering.


Theo Jansen (Ele nasceu em 17 de março de 1948, na cidade de Scheveningen, na Holanda) é um artista e escultor cinético holandês. A sua obra é especialmente conhecida pelos trabalhos de grandes dimensões que se assemelham a esqueletos de animais e que são capazes de caminhar utilizando a energia do vento. As suas obras são uma mistura de arte e engenharia. Link link para o artigo Esculturas (Quase) Vivas, na Revista Veja.

  1. I remember you showing us the sculptures from 2008...They are simply AMAZING! What is fascinating in the video you included is how "living" like the piece moves---especially when you can see people and dogs in the background on the beach there---It is really stunning!
    Thanks for the wonderful reminder of this man's terrificly original and talented work, dear Sonia....!

  2. Oi Sonia, great to see a new post. Missed you!

    I've never heard of this sculptor. Thanks for introducing his work. I had a huge WOW! moment when I saw your video and had to go see the rest! They are magnificent as art but I'm sure there's a lot of science in them too.

    Did you notice the dogs in your vid are unconcerned by the huge monster "walking" by? Georgia would either have gone nuts or been petrified lol. The sculptures must be there quite often. I wish this man would make something for OUR Scultures By The Sea here in Sydney.

    Have a great Sunday x

  6. Oi Sonia
    A Arte permite grandes criações e essa é uma delas, muito interresante.
    Parecem mesmo insetos andando , como diz a reportagem da Veja e o vídeo dá a dimensão do quanto fica bonito sendo levada pelo vento.
    Um trabalho que nao agride a natureza,feita com material barato e super diferente Sonia.
    Adorei.
    deixo abraço

  12. Interesting, Amazing, Amusing piece of creativity. Isn't it amazing what human brains can conceive and design!. Although i wonder what would be the reaction of someone who sees these objects moving in the dark without having any prior info about them :)

    Here is the link to my bicycling trip photos - http://www.cyclists.in/photo/albums/mumbai-goa-coastal-route-cycling-2011
