Strandbeest *

September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Theo Jansen has been creating Strandbeest (Dutch: strand=beach; beest=beast), wind-walking examples of artificial life, since 1990. Constructed as intricate assemblages of piping, wood, and wing-like sails, Jansen’s creations are constantly being improved and have become excellently adapted to their sandy beach environment. The creations sport legs, which “prove to be more efficient on sand than wheels…they don’t need to touch every inch of the ground along the way, as a wheel has to.”

*HPU Family Weekend Badge and/or a student Passport is required for access to this event.  Guests with badges and/or student Passports will be welcomed 60 minutes before start time.
