Monument To The Unknown Artist, Southwark

It’s is a 6m high bronze sculpture standing on a stone plinth. It’s not just a sculpture but its an interactive sculpture known as Animatonic Statue. It is located just behind Tate’s Modern.

It actually imitates ones body language when you are in front of him but i think this is an amazing way of  allowing people (shoppers, tourist or workers) to engage with the public and the art around Southwark.

It’s a very playful sculpture which is used to decorate the landscape. He actually creates its own poses when it has been left alone which i find very fascinating because they have made the sculpture look like it has got a mind and mood of its own.
