This summer London’s South Bank— a bustling area along the River Thames—was host to an extraordinary array of events and installations for the Festival of the World. Towering above it all were some monstrous men made from salvaged wood. Ascending the outer walls of the Hayward Gallery, the figures were created by London art collective Robots>>>>.
Robots>>>> is a London-based  art collective that builds large-scale sculpture from recycled and repurposed scrap. Designers, artists, engineers and art directors collaborate to create dramatic sculptures for both private clients and public organizations around the globe. Working on the premise that “one man’s rubbish is another man’s gold”, Robots>>>> creates amazing creatures  influenced by nature, science and comics.
The giant sculptures scaling the Southbank are crafted from recycled wood  and reclaimed steel. They were created with the help of kids at the Oasis Children’s Venture , a safe play space for young people in London’s borough of Lambeth. But these wooden men are not just decoration, they encourage people to look up and see the sky.
