Stakcgrox!

The Giant Robotic Crow


In early 2014 I was asked if I could supply something for an upcoming exhibition at The Book Club bar / gallery. The space was to be curated by Liat Chen, with other work by Naama Hofman and Nir Adoni.

There had been a recent story on the news about the Pope releasing two doves from a balcony, which went on to be attacked by a crow and a seagull. I love how the symbolic gesture went wrong and turned into an unintentionally dark metaphor of doom - it has been my favourite story this year. As a tribute to the crow I decided to make a giant mechanical version. His name is Stakcgrox.

The images below were taken by Sipke Visser, whose photography I really like.
