Giles Walker’s piece the last Supper delighted Cambridge people in 2013 as his motley gang of robots took over a shop in King street.
Giles Walker Kinetic artist and sculptor
"Robots can tell a tale " 2013: The Last Supper with Changing Spaces
He has been building sculpture for the last 27 years.
He is a full-time member of the guerrilla-art group, The Mutoid Waste Company, and he started building sculptures from materials found in scrapyards as they travelled around Europe.
In the mid-nineties he introduced basic motors into his sculptures and his work became kinetic. He plays with the relationship between technology and the human being and the ever dissolving boundary that separates man from machine. His ‘machines’ often allude to the underbelly of the human obsession with increased technology….the displaced and redundant.
