The Great Pretender


Jansen, Theo

Cl. Rotterdam, 2007

Book ID: 78249

Since 1990 kinetic artist Theo Jansen has been creating new forms of life: beach animals. These aren't made of protein like existing life forms, but from another basic stuff--plastic tubing. Skeletons made from these tubes are able to walk, getting their energy from the wind. "The Great Pretender" introduces the reader to Jansen's curious menagerie.

240 pp., Color and B&W illus. Includes DVD.
