When art, science, engineering and performance meet, nothing short of a ‘new species on Earth’ happens. Witness 13 large-scale Strandbeests – which translates to ‘beach animals’ in Dutch – move in a startlingly like-life fashion in the galleries. These wind-powered machines, made from everyday materials, are the brainchild of Theo Jansen, a sculptor from the Netherlands who has spent the last 28 years developing these unique kinetics sculptures. The largest of them all is Animaris Siamesis which measures 10m in length and weighs over 240kg.
