A few Saturdays ago I went to the former Electricity-Factory in the Hague, to see the ‘Strandbeesten’-exhibition. These ‘Strandbeesten’ (‘Beach-Animals’) are a creation of artist Theo Jansen. For many years he is busy to design ‘new life-forms’; creatures, made of PVC-electricity-tubes, that can walk over the beach; driven by the wind. It is great to see them move (go to: http://www.strandbeest.com/). On the ground-floor of the Electricity-Factory the newest Strandbeest-creation was tested; and this Saturday (third of May) it was ‘set-free’ on the ‘Zuiderstrand’. A parade of enthusiasts carried the beast from the Factory to the Beach.
