Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Into The Wind

A friend recently gave me a link to this video, and I found it beautiful. Since there isn't much blogging on Sundays, I thought you might like to see it.




There are more videos at Theo Jansen of the same artist, with different shaped beasts. Although it is hard to call something so beautiful a beast. It must be the wings.


I read on his site that he would like to build more of these and leave them to wander the beaches. I would love to see a beach full of these sculptures.
I think they are like lace, in capturing air and space.

Suzann, these are magical! I feel the same wonder that I do when looking at fractals or Escher's drawings. How someone can envision a thing that somehow transcends our usual 3 dimensions is evidence of a special kind of genius.

Incredible! This man's mind and his sculptures make me think of Da Vinci. Something imagined, never seen before, brought to reality.

That is brilliant! Like Benne, it reminded me of Da Vinci too!

I think they are magical also. No aliens involved. It is just amazing what the human brain can think up.
