For almost 30 years, through precise calculations and almost independent work, using ordinary materials such as PVC, Theo Jensen has repeatedly experimented on the Dutch beach to create mechanisms that hunt and move on their own. His actions demonstrated the possibilities of individual imagination, the balance between science and art, sensory and rationality. He also encouraged people to rethink their understanding about perseverance, or meaning of life and time. He provided a revolutionary new perspective on existing knowledge and concepts, opening new frontiers for biology, religion and art. He has made enlightening contributions on how to make life choices, how to understand oneself and nature, and how to measure the attitude of pursuing one’s dreams.
