Riding the Wind

Have you heard of wind sculptures? They are kinetic art -- made up of parts designed to be set in motion by wind.
Dutch artist Theo Jansen's Strandbeest can walk in the wind.

Lyman Whitaker's wind sculptures look fabulous in the snow

Now, THAT'S a weathervane! By David Boyer

Also, Mr. Boyer's front yard:

Swiss designer Ralfonso's Ad Infinitum

Lisa and Phillip Trejo's "Art 4 Wind"


Do-it-yourself: How to Make a Wind Sculpture.

This is not a wind sculpture, but it is kinetic art. You can see it in motion on the site -- very cool!
