Theo Jansen

Yesterday I met up with a chick off Tinder for the first time. Tinder's been an amusing experience as everyone who knows me on FB has probably noticed.

Anyway, I was early and she was late, so I wandered as I am wont to do, and stumbled onto Theo Jansen giving a demonstration/exhibition of some of his work. Absolutely fascinating stuff and man, and it was wicked to meet him in person (yup got his autograph too)

if you don't know who he is and haven't seen his Strand Beest, check this out.
