Kinetic Sculptures

BMW is featuring the work of Theo Jansen in one of their commercials. Mr. Jansen creates kinetic sculptures, which in this case is a large mechanical insect that uses wind to power its legs. You really have to see this video to believe it!

Thanks to Leila Takayama for telling me about this.

Jason, Theo visited the school of art a year or two ago.

This reminds me too much of my experiences with Yo-Yo Ma in Pittsburgh. I always hear about these *after* they happen. :(
