Very Curious Artform – Strandbeest

Whilst being sick, I came across this very peculiar video:

The creations look eerily organic and uncanny alive and I have found the creators site very interesting, or,  as Caine would name it “a time sink”. It is a fascinating blend of art and engineering. I think that in a virtual PC simulation it could be combined with real evolutionary algorithms these beasts could really “evolve” into even more bizzare shapes.

It also reminded me of Caine, I think she would love it.

    What’s funny is that about a year and a half ago, I sent her a link as a ‘hey look at this’ and it turns out she’d posted about them before. :D
    But I love these, they look so alive and a lot of fun!

    I love them too, and he’s developed so many since I last looked, thank you for reminding us of them Charly!

    I love these! I saw a video previously showing them a few years ago. Clearly he has been working on a bunch more. For some reason, they remind me of Shadow Of The Colossus.
