Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest

Artist Theo Jansen demon­strates the amaz­ing­ly life­like kinet­ic sculp­tures he builds from plas­tic tubes and lemon­ade bot­tles. His crea­tures are designed to move — and even sur­vive — on their own.

Greetings from Vondelpark, Amsterdam

Crazi­ness this week — a harsh intro­duc­tion to dutch red tape. Hon­est­ly, it was like a scene out of Brazil!

Short updates (for those inter­est­ed!):

  • “Urban Queens” short film near­ing the end of post-pro­duc­tion, start­ing to hang togeth­er now.
  • Motion Graph­ics showreel almost done
  • Nether­lands tax num­ber (SOFI) progress
  • “Fire Poi” short film about 70% com­plete
  • I’m still try­ing to learn the Midi Trig­ger Fin­ger!

No dice with study­ing in Berlin — it smelt fun­ny. Free rental bikes though, and it had a great Film Muse­um with Mar­lene Diet­rich, Fritz Lang & Ray Har­ry­hausen (!) exhibits.
