Theo Jansen is an artist and kinetic sculptor from the Netherlands. He builds large works which resemble skeletons of animals which are able to walk using the wind on the beaches of the Netherlands. His animated works are a fusion of art and engineering.

Jansen is dedicated to creating artificial life through the use of genetic algorithms. These programs simulate evolution inside their code. More here and here.
