Theo Jansen may not refer to himself as an artist, but the genius kenetic sculptures that bloom from his hands beg to differ. 

Beautiful new video of the magnificent work of Theo Jansen (PopTech 2005).

Blending the line between art and engineering, Theo Jansen (PopTech 2005), a Dutch visual artist creates “life” in the form of “animals” that walk the beach in the Netherlands.
