Plastic-tube beasts wandering around on beaches

I was directed to this cool page today - strandbeest - once on the word film below the first image and view the various films on Theo Jansen's work.
Since about ten years Theo Jansen is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic matierial of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind. Eventualy he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives.
Can you picture these walking around the playa at BM?

Update - here's an article on Theo.
