Jansen's animals

Apparently, I'm a little late hearing about Theo Jansen, but his work is so amazing, it's still worth a post: Jansen is a scientist turned artist in the Netherlands. His kinetic sculptures range from wind-powered animals made from plastic tubes to a man-pulled "rhinoceros" that undulates down the road. Eric at the Walker New Media department points out a new interview:
Q. After so many years, are you in control of the beach animals or are they really controlling you?

A.They have always controlled me. I obeyed their laws. Only recently they do what I want.
Don't miss movies of Jansen's work.
