Dabbling in Existentsoleism

Are you familiar with the Strandbeest?

It's a mobile sculpture created by Theo Jansen. It's essentially a big, creepy, sentient scaffolding. It's made of plastic piping. It uses wind and air pressure to move on its own.

Jansen thinks of the Strandbeests as actual life forms. He says with improvement over time, they've "become increasingly better at surviving the elements." His plan is for Strandbeest subspecies to live on beaches. They will evolve and learn and evolve some more.

Jansen's Strandbeest has elicited all manner of philosophical questions about what life is and how species adapt.

These boots are exactly the same way. You probably looked at their picture and instantly started to wonder what it means to be alive. What is it to see, touch, feel and walk? What does it mean to be a boot?

We have no answers for you.

But it's probably time to get that radon leak checked out.
