To fend off boredom, utterly utterly boring boredom, let’s collect sheer lunacy and other ridiculous ideas.

And the strandbeest things that visit the Dutch beaches now and then, perfectly fit that description.

This is a short presentation.



If you think that that’s not nearly enough, please visit:

Strandbeest.com

Or music.

This exact same record is in da family since 1959.
And what a jewel it is.
Kind regards, Gus

yeah! Strandbeest - the brilliant projects of kinetic structures  by Theo Jansen.
I like this quote "The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds." from his wikipedia page.
