Strandbeests!

We heard these creatures sometimes roamed the beaches.  They’d been sighted on Boston’s north shore.  Our friend from Boston, Letti, took us to the Peabody Essex in Salem where these beests were on exhibit.  There are lots of detailed drawings, and models.  The beests can move, and they do.  Theo, the creator, greeted us through many videos in which he discusses his process, his vision, his passion.  He does it with straight face including a ditty about the reproductive process.  We look forward to the exhibit getting to San Francisco’s Exploratorium sometime in the next couple of years.
