The Last Train




The last train

“The last Train” is a kinetic sculpture. It depicts an exhausted white-collar worker who lives in a fast-speed city. He always works overtime, always worries about if he can catch the last train. His cheap old leather shoes have already been in bad shape. His daily life includes: working all day, going home alone, falling asleep torpidly, and waking up to repeat the very same yesterday.

The work utilized the LEGO parts as mechanical component which was programed through LEGO EV3 robotics kit. The surrealistic shoe is made by silicone and a used leather shoe. The shoe mimics the movement of walking. It opens his mouth and makes sound of heavy sigh every few steps, and repeat the same pattern over and over again.
