Strandbeest / The Evolution of the Beest

‘Every day I travelled the ten kilometres from Delft to the beach by bike. On the way, ideas would come to me. In the morning I’d cycle there bursting with optimism only to return in the evening in the state of depression. Asleep at night I was gripped by an inexplicable transformation – radiation from the cosmos or whatever, tossed on the waves of fantasy. At about 6am I would awake armed with new ideas.’
