Artist Theo Jansen Walks His Magnificent Kinetic Strandbeests Along the Beach in San Francisco

In 2011 we wrote about Dutch artist Theo Jansen and his Strandbeests, incredible wind-powered walking sculptures that harness the power of the wind to move forward. Recently, Jansen brought his magnificent kinetic skeletal structures to San Francisco for the very first time and walked them along Crissy Field Beach. Both KQED Arts and the San Francisco Chronicle spoke with Jansen while he was in town.
