Millions of internet users across the globe are awestruck with the unique “beach animals” or "kinetic structures" created by Dutch artist Theo Jansen.


Millions of internet users across the globe are awestruck with the unique “beach animals” created by Dutch artist Theo Jansen. The video posted on Twitter is causing a stir that shows large moving objects made of white sticks or pipes through the wind alongside the beach. It was back in 1990 when the extraordinary artist began building these mechanisms out of plastic tubes that are capable to move on their own with the use of winds. Also known as “kinetic sculptures”, the Dutch artist’s creations are the “perfect” amalgamation of art and engineerings. 

According to reports, Jansen has said that the “walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds” and has strived to equip his own creations with the unique artificial intelligence so that the “beach animals” avoid obstacles on their own and changing the course. The short 15-second-long section from the actual video posted on Twitter has left internet users spellbound and has already garnered over 1.8 million views with nearly 50k likes.
