Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen:   A Conversation with Lena Herzog (Clip)
Running Time:
01:13:00

And that combination of sophistication and simplicity extends even to their construction, because if you look at them they seem complex but actually they are built up from repetitions of just a handful of core principles. Lena Herzog, in conversation with Lawrence Weschler

Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Neon: Ed Kirshner (Clip)
Running Time:
00:20:07
Neon is normally odorless and colorless, reacting with no one, not even itself. Abundant in the universe, uncommon on Earth, it drifts aloof from any bond. When isolated by Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers inside a vacuum tube in 1898, the noble gas betrayed its excitement in brilliant red. That excitement, glowing within Georges Claudes ingeniously curved lamps since 1923, has captured our imaginations ever since.
