MAKE reader Connie writes in!
Dear MAKE, Last Thursday I had the honour of seeing artist Theo Jansen present his Animaris Umerus, one of the famed Strandbeests, in Zurich for his first exhibition in Switzerland. At the end of the (sold out) evening, I looked through my bag for something he could autograph. How appropriate that I had the latest issue of MAKE magazine. His creations are like wind powered robots, his method DIY, elegant engineering through modest materials and nervous sytems created through binary code. It was a perfect match! I waited afterwards until others finished their private questions and asked him to sign my issue. He complied without hesitation, flipping through your magazine admiring the “robots, rovers and drones”. I thought that you might like to know :-) Attached some photos from the event & his autograph.
