The exhibition consists of four separate sections themed on interest, knowledge, experience, and imagination, through which the visitor can learn what Strandbeest is and how it moves and then will watch the actual Strandbeest in motion.
EXHIBIT CONTENTS ZONE
The beginning of the story
”Life” is the section designed to elicit viewers’ interest in the new artificial life, presented with such information as its birth history and creator’s intentions. Postulating that he became the Creator of a new form of life, Theo gave life to the line-shape creature, which then only existed on computer, while willing to observe its evolutionary process thereafter. The whole story began from there.
The “space-time” section includes introduction of the latest life science along with the description and a chronological table of Strandbeest, the new form of life that keeps evolving through a trial-and-error process that constantly requires new assembling parts created by taping tubes together, applying heat to them, and so on. Different types of Strandbeest that have come into being over time are shown here with explanations on the process of their evolution under the eight divided time phases.
Bodily feel Strandbeest in motion
“Deep impression” is the section designed for the visitor to realistically feel Strandbeest in motion, in conjunction with its projected images in a natural state such as with the ocean in the background. Presentation of moving Strandbeest takes place once every hour.
Theo’s Creation process
”Future” is where Jansen’s memorandums and journal are displayed as if in the actual workshop, offering the opportunity to see the creating process of the new form of life. The experience gained here hopefully will inspire the person to find a new type of path to the future
