TOEFL inspires learning – what on earth is a kinetic sculpture?
Once again, TOEFL material has inspired my blog entry. This time it’s about kinaesthetic art and kinetic sculptures. Whilst looking for information on You Tube for a NELS TOEFL lesson, we found some really incredible moving sculptures. The man behind many of these creations is a Dutch man called Theo Jansen. He has made a ‘family’ of what must be seen to be believed. He gives a TED talk in this video and shows some of his ‘animals’. Quite remarkable, don’t you think? I’m not convinced of the point of them, and I’m sure he is a little crazy, but his work certainly makes for eye-opening entertainment.
