Every now and then, you just need a fun, feel-good story. This outta do it! The ingenuity of some people is just beyond words. When I think of the work involved from imagination to reality and every step in between to create these walking beach creatures, I am truly speechless…

From The New Yorker:

Ian Frazier writes about Theo Jansen, a Dutch artist who makes kinetic sculptures that walk on the beach called Strandbeests. In this video, with footage by the filmmaker Alexander Schlichter, Frazier discusses these wind-powered sculptures and how they fit into the tradition of Dutch landscapes.”
