Every so often, somebody creates something wonderful. Theo Jansen's Strandbeests fit into that category.
Through the net I've followed his work for some time now, so when I heard that one of the beasts was coming to Devon for a couple of weeks I was very happy.
Organised by Spacex in Exeter and Amino Arts in Newcastle, a new beast (Ventosa Siamesis) came to Exmouth Beach for three days and will also spend three days in Exeter City Centre, with an exhibition in Spacex and a talk by Theo in the Central Library this Friday (booking required!).
This sounded like a good excuse to do a timelapse, so on Thursday I headed over the Exmouth and did a timelapse movie of the setup day:
