    How do you bring things to life? You give them names. Histories. Motives and aspirations. This is the alchemy that drives every story about the act of playing god, turning a thing into a creature. A flash of lightning, a scientific breakthrough, and suddenly we see twitching, unpredictable presence where inert materials lay just a moment before. It’s a change in perspective, in meaning, in grammar, allowing some rough beast to slouch into the world. Theo Jansen’s strandbeests are beautiful examples of this very old magic.
