Theo Jansen's spectacular creatures

For the first time the magnificent kinetic creatures inspired by the animal world are in display in Italy; they move using the thrust of the wind thanks to sensors that adjust to the environment.  Defined by international critics as a modern Leonardo da Vinci, Theo Jansen loves to combine scientific knowledge with humanistic effects, ranging from experiments on kinetics and mechanics to the exaltation of nature and beauty.  These are the roots from which the poetics of the Dutch artist originate and that make him closer to the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci, symbol of unity with knowledge and dialog between humanistic and technical-scientific culture.
