Theo Jansen – The Kinetic Sculptor

Each time I see Theo Jansen‘s Kinetic sculptures, I feel like a little boy all over again, experiencing something new and wonderful for the first time. Essentially, his art could be defined as the perfect fusion between nature and technology, but putting words on such masterpieces can’t really make you understand how powerful his creations are. So to make you understand, I invite you to have a look at the following pictures and videos of his work. I can guarantee you’ll be blown away by what you’ll see.
