Sand Creatures and Wind

I found the link through Tony Comstock at James Fallow’s blog, but of course, it’s from one of those odd but fascinating shows the BBC specializes in. The series, Wallace and Grommit’s World of Invention, documents the world of inventors. Theo Jansen, the inventor here, makes sand creatures that walk the beaches.

These are called Animaris Siamesis. They’re strangely crab like, organic in feel despite being made of pvc pipe. And all together eerily beautiful. The perfect antidote really to another day wrapped in snow.
