Do seu Livro "The Great Pretender", transcrevo: «These are not made of protein like the existing life-forms but from another basic stuff, yellow plastic tubing. Skeletons made from these tubes are able to walk. They get their energy from the wind, so they don't have to eat like regular animals. They evolved over many generations, becoming increasingly adept at surviving storms and water from the sea. Theo Jansen's ultimate wish is to release herds of these animals on the shore. In redoing the Creation, so to speak, he hopes to become wiser in his dealings with the existing nature by encountering problems the Real Creator had to face.»
Uma excelente união entre arte, engenharia e ambiente. Da Vinci vive!
Nota: Agradeço à minha amiga Margarida A.R. por me ter dado a conhecer Theo Jansen.
