Theo Jansen the merging of art and engineering

Standard

“The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds.” – Theo Jansen

Sculptor Theo Jansen sets out to give form to wind through kinnetic sculptures. Now, we have seen a few mobiles out there but Jansen’s sculptures energize the imagination.

Now the obvious question – how can we apply these ideas in sustainable design?

    Hi lushbooks,
    thanks for sharing these information and thoughts with the rest of the world. These sculptures are currently used for the BMW campaign (here in Germany?), and we were already wondering about their creator. Now we know!
    Cheers! silke 🙂
