Art and machines

As the structure of Arne Quinze in Mons suddenly gained additional degrees of freedom to become a mechanism, decease it is pleasant to start the new year with admiration for the inspired works of Panamarenko, Jean Tinguely, and Theo Jansen. “The line between art and engineering exists only in our minds ” – Theo Jansen.

Have a creative year in 2015 ! Design, Experiment, Improve and Communicate!
