The Last Supper/Giles Walker

Giles Walker spent a year constructing the remarkable piece, The Last Supper. It is a fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen mechanical figures who interact around a table. It's quite funny at times and a bit scary, it is also extraordinarily human, which you realize as the robotic nature of the piece gives way to the lurking humanity beneath it. if you are unfamiliar with Walker, he is a UK-based artist who has created sculptures for almost thIrty years. He is a 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. Walker also creates collages, which he contends is a link to his scrapyard work.
