Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen


By Lena Herzog, Theo Jansen, Lawrence Weschler

For the past seven years, photographer and artist Lena Herzog has followed the evolution of a new kinetic species. Intricate as insects, but with bursts of equine energy, the "Strandbeests," or "beach creatures," are the passionate project of artist Theo Jansen. Brimming with fold-out pages and informative notes on Jansen's process and the evolution of these mysterious works, this book is a cohesive look at Strandbeests. The accompanying exhibition will be on view at PEM September 19, 2015–January 3, 2016.
