The Easel

Still Alive

It’s not immediately clear how best to describe Theo Jansen’s “Strandbeest” sculptures.  Disorienting perhaps; certainly arresting. Made of PVC piping, they march back and forth along the beach according to the breezes. Its only when they start to move that they become understandable – hence the short video clips are a must. The reviewer’s focus on their feet is not as odd as it sounds.
