This is the beginning of my documentary “Strandbeesten”. Strandbeesten is a portrait of the artist Theo Jansen.

Jansen is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic material of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind.
For this film I’ve accompanied Theo for five years and the result is a 32 minutes documentary.
