"I was born in Philadelphia, I lived in New Jersey for a short time, and then I moved to England, when I was a kid. And then, I recently moved to L.A. I’m American by birth, and English by accent. I grew up just outside London, in Surrey. So, I’m a Jersey Brit!"








Theo Jansen  Strandbeest

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

schmias !!!

Thank you for tagging me! I have seen these before but I love them so much I will never get enough!

Whaaaaat is this legit??

You can buy miniature Strandbeests and Jansen’s website (and on ebay, if you’re lucky). They are easy to assemble and they walk really well, even over small obstacles.

here’s a video of it walking

and it’s hard to be a human being
and it’s harder as anything else
and I’m lonesome when you’re around
and I’m never lonesome when I’m by myself

and I miss you when you’re around
and I miss you when you’re around
and I miss you when you’re around
