ALERT: Strandbeest Takeover

Inspired by Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen, the Peabody Essex Museum is continuing a series of mini-residencies for its Maker Lounge. Creative, tech-minded, curious and people-loving folk are invited to take over the Lounge to develop their own project or projects exploring the poetic or pragmatic possibilities of mechanical motion, as exampled in Theo Jansen’s otherworldly kinetic sculptures that use simple machines — wheels, levers, pistons — to create wind-powered motion, blurring the boundaries between animate and inanimate beings.
