Mr. Weekend

Seattle artist Mike Simi has been creating weirder and weirder installations since graduating with an MFA from the UW back in 2007. His public work has included the "Beef Stew Monster," a blue-eyed mechanical creature made of meat that reacted in different ways to viewers, and "Nightmoves," a circle of a dozen mechanical people hidden in dark clothing, lumbering through a space as if lost.

His most recent work is Mr. Weekend, a 15-foot tall interactive robotic sock puppet. More about Mr. Weekend, including a video on the making of the puppet, here.
