Wind Powered Art

The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds. — Theo Jansen

Good News of the Day:
Beautiful art can inspire a person to see life in a totally new way. Theo Jansen is the Dutch creator of what he calls “Kinetic Sculptures,” where nature and technology meet. Essentially these sculptures are robots powered only by the wind. Amazingly, these machines are made completely of recycled items. The ‘stomach’ of the sculpture is made with retired plastic bottles that capture the air pumped by the wind. To harness the wind, Jansen employs bicycle pumps, plastic tubing and rubber rings! Witness beauty through ingenuity in this short video.
