Beasts of the beach

It takes something pretty special to get art-worlders out of their beds at 6.30am. But the stalwart souls (including The Art Newspaper's Louisa Buck) who made it down to the beach for yesterday’s sunrise InstaMeet, marking the Miami debut of the Dutch artist Theo Jansen’s kinetic “Strandbeests”, were not disappointed. Although a brisk breeze prevented the largest of the wind-propelled beasties from having an outing, two of his smaller, but no less intricately constructed, specimens scuttled across the sand with an uncannily realistic gait after a little encouragement from the artist, along with a band of helpers from sponsors Audemars Piguet and Salem’s Peabody Essex Museum. For those who prefer a lie-in, “Strandbeests” of various shapes and sizes will be making daily perambulations between 21st and 22nd Streets at 10.30am and 4.30pm until Sunday.
