Great Commercials: Part#3 - Theo Jansen : The Genious Sculptor

Theo Jansen is an artist and kinetic sculptor living and working in 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. In a BMW television commercial, Jansen says "The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds."

Thank you. Yes, I stumbled upon this in one of the sites, and I did some research about it. It is really amazing. I wish that people spend their time in pursuing great inventions instead of planning wars.
