Age has you feel
Of thinned conceal
By a starved brush,
Upon your person
Wants but to instil
A sense of rush,
The while reward
Be to lay shades,
In wisdom’s colours
On its aging canvas
Begs innate candour... Thus so you knowLife lends redress,To shadowed greysOf life’s excesses, Will shape in partWhat age expresses...Hence of bold linesCarved so by time, Some even apropos Meant not unkind, To one’s tableaux That age defines, While time directsYou suffer decline, Yet holds respect For the art of aging, Alas be man’s eschatology!
As said by my dear friend Louise F. – The ingenuity of this artist, is a marvel, and his museum is simply … the beach.
À propos d’art… on ne cesse pas d’être étonné!
Pour citer ma chère amie Louise F. – L’ingéniosité de cet artiste, est une merveille! Et son musée est tout simplement… la plage.
SINCE 1990 JASEN HAS BEEN CREATING A NEW FORM OF ART IN MOTION THAT LIVES ON THE BEACH
Jansen is a planar leg mechanism designed by the kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen to generate a smooth walking motion. Jansen has used his mechanism in a variety of kinetic sculptures which are known as Strandbeesten (Dutch for “beach beasts”). Jansen’s linkage bears artistic as well as mechanical merit for its simulation of organic walking motion using a simple rotary input. These leg mechanisms have applications in mobile robotics and in gait analysis.
