Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen with photography by Lena Herzog is a special exhibition at the Exploratorium which features enormous kinetic sculptures called strandbeests—“beach animals” in Dutch—that mesmerize with their eerily lifelike motion. These amazing beests walk a wandering, wind-blown line between art and engineering, mechanics and biology.
On tour for the first time in North America, the exhibition will be at the Exploratorium from Friday, May 27, through September 5, 2016. http://www.exploratorium.ed...
Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA. Audemars Piguet provided generous support as the tour's National Sponsor. This exhibition is supported as part of the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
