BSA Special Feature: Theo Jansen: Strandbeest
The Dutch artist Theo Jansen creates new forms of life: impressive skeletal structures that move independently, powered by the wind. The Strandbeests are created with plastic electrical tubing and bring to mind the stages of evolution – especially when exhibited on oceanside. Jansen says his creations have actually moved through 12 periods of evolution.
“By developing this evolution, I hope to become wiser in the understanding of existing nature by encountering myself the problems of the real Creator.”
Currently on exhibition at Kunstmuseum Den Haag, “Theo Jansen, Strandbeesten, de nieuwe generatie” is open until July 3rd.

Matt Black: UNAMERICAN DREAM. America’s hidden geography of poverty.
“I’ve spent nearly all my adult life in a photographic dialogue with the central valley of California, ” he says of the state so rich that it would rank high among countries of the world, if it were a country. But that’s not what Matt Black has been documenting.
