This robotic DJ and pole dancer were created by sculptor/designer Giles Walker. These guys, and more of his work, are being shown at MUTATE BRITAIN exhibition in London.
He says of the exotic dancing robot, “I wondered if it was possible to literally make a CCTV camera sexy using simple mechanics…and by using the imagery of a pole dancer question the roles played in voyerism. Could this pile of old windscreen wipers and odd pieces of metal become something sexual….”
I wonder where you’re supposed to put the dollar bills?
Walker’s current project is a set of animated drunks, to be placed on park benches to interact with the public using presence sensors.
