As the year comes to an end, I, like many, tend to reflect on the last year. One thing I enjoy is looking back to see what posts readers of Today in Art like most. The best way I have of doing this today is by looking at the most visited posts.
The Walking Kinetic Sculpture of Theo Jansen
Living somewhere between kinetic sculpture and conceptual robotics, Theo Jansen’s creations are just as visually interesting as they are from a functional perspective. Since I first featured Theo Jansen on Today in Art, there have not been many new photos added. Recently, new photos of Jansen and his creatures have been uploaded. This is exciting and I can’t wait to see where he goes with his work.
