"Images Have Legs lies in waiting, ready to be brought to life by a passing gallery-goer. The crank handle is turned, and photographic cutouts spin in a mesmeric spiral - momentum gathered beyond the initial activation feeds the sculpture with a constant whirling energy until finally dissipating.

It is as if entering into an animation – the flat limbs reminiscent of a Monty Python graphic - a surreal collage projected into actuality, where the irrational laws that govern the cartoon world dominate. The automaton references a history of early image making and motion-capture techniques such as the Eadweard Muybridge running horse, or pre-film animation devices such as a Victorian zoetrope."

 - Lucy Gregory, Royal College of Art
