A little rundown on The Last Supper:
Giles Walker's extraordinary Last Supper. A fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen mechanical figures who interact around a table. A year in the making, this remarkable work is simultaneously humorous and frightening. The Last Supper surpasses the audience's initial interest in the robotic elements of the piece and draws us into the questions it poses and the all too human aspects it addresses. It promises to leave a lasting impression on those who have the opportunity to experience it.
