The Beach Walker: Theo Jansen brings Strandbeests to Art Basel

As part of his two year American tour, Theo Jansen took his strandbeests — kinetic sculptures made of lightweight PVC tubing and wind-catching white sails — to Miami Beach in a Peabody Essex Museum-hosted showcase.

Above, The New York Times reports on their arrival at the Art Basel event. To see the beach creatures in person, stay tuned for news of their arrival at additional U.S. locations, including “the Chicago Cultural Center (winter to spring 2016), the Exploratorium in San Francisco (summer 2016) and possibly in New York after that.” You can also build your own table-top version from this kit.
