Theo Jansen: kinetic sculptor

I was first introduced to Theo Jansen's work through this BMW commercial. Over the last 15 years this kinetic sculptor has made pieces of art that race on our Dutch beaches by just the power of wind. The materials used for creating them is just your common stuff like cardboard, tape, plastic tubes and bottles.

See some of his amazing sculptures on his website with included movies or learn more about the man through this profile on Wired.

Amazing stuff.
