MIT Media Lab talk- Theo Jansen = art/science intersection

I spent a rainy afternoon inside the MIT Media lab being delighted by Theo Jansen!  He is a Dutch artist that is hard to explain- his work intersects art + nature + physics. He creates "Strandbeests" created of PVC pipe, zip ties, and elastic that can walk along the beach with the slight push of the wind or human hand. He is in the Boston area promoting his upcoming exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum, and attracting large curious crowds. The questions asked by the genius MIT academic crowd, answers by the hyper-creative artist, and the uber-modern space made for an enriching experience for the design geeks of the area.

You have to see the video to understand!
