It’s here, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! We are proud to announce the winner of our Strandbeest Hackathon. Give a great big round of applause to….
The Mayors of Simpleton!
Congratulations on a job well done. The Conduitucus Americanus is truly the next step in Strandbeest evolution.
And please give another, equally hearty round of applause to our runner up…
Noodles (The Noodlis) was definitely the sweetheart of the event, and her movements are inspiring!
Congratulations to all of our hackers and a huge thank you to our judges, we know it wasn’t an easy decision. Your ideas were great, your beests are grand, and it was a pleasure having you all join us for our first Hackathon here at PEM.
We would also like to thank our volunteers and our #PEMhack followers! Special shout out to our international audience in Australia, South Korea, U.S. Virgin Islands, Vietnam, Italy, Spain, and Iceland. Hope you enjoyed the Strandbeest Hackathon as much as we did!
You can see The Mayors of Simpleton’s prize winning beest in the Strandbeest: the Dream Machines of Theo Jansen exhibition, on view at the Peabody Essex Museum through January 3, 2016.
