Sculptures that can move? These mobile "animals" are the artistic vision of Dutch artist and kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen. Since 1990 Jansen has been creating a new form of art in motion that lives on beaches. Jansen's animals are wind powered and were seen in a BMW commercial in 2006. The skeletal structure of each animal is made from electrical tubes bound together by zip ties. A rotating spine in the internal structure of the creatures allow the animals to move forwards and backwards. Jansen
