In this picture Joe, Andy and (rock n roll ) Dave are testing
the conveyor belts with £1 cans of beer which just happen to be
the same weight as a the hand bags we will finally display on them.
The belts were converted from exercise treadmills.
This was my second project with Anya Hindmarch. We had 14 people inside the rotating set with all the mechanical effects hand operated except for the mice and roaches running about.
Worked at Artem as part of a team designing and making this pop-up and inflatable puppet, its part of the opening London Games. It lifted out of a bed that raised up and could rotate 360 degrees via people on the ground, one performer inside the body who lifted the body up and operated the arms and a mouth.
Helped creating this fabulous launch for Anya Hindmarch with her wonderful creative team of Bevan Roper and Matt Booth, my own excellent team working out of our Dalston studio we made the animatronics, installed the conveyor belt with the great help from James at Kbr machinery and made some nutty roaming cabinets with performers inside.
The animatronics are now in Paris and can soon be seen back in London in early March.
