Photographer's Note

A somewhat unusual encounter with a giant and somewhat muscular looking robot with a strong auditory presence whenever he moves. This guy running towards you makes you think twice about standing your ground - in fact in a small space it doesn't seem like a good idea at all - but here at least he was being friendly.

This guy is BIG! I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like it! This was at the MAC Arts Centre in Birmingham just near the even more famous Egbaston Cricket Ground.

TITAN is just something else!

The creator of this amazing phenomena!?
Known as the Robot Man in his hometown  of Newquay in Cornwall, Nik Fielding first created the robot Cyberstein in 1997 because of a childhood dream to be a giant Robot. The local papers picked up on this, then after a full page spread in the Daily Mail was invited on to the Big Breakfast by Johnny Vaughn to shock Kelly Brook and did a very good job! This was the beginning of a whole new career for Nik.

Cyberstein the performing Robot was born.

After just six months of performing in the Robot he was booked to be the in house entertainment at the Millennium Dome This was shown simultaneously on 5 channels and left a big impression in the minds of the millions that visited the spectacle. During the last year the goal has been to make it more than just an amazing walkabout and take it to the next evolutionary stage and make it a street show.

With the help from Anton Mackman, a comedy street performer, Cyberstein Robot Show was created.

Titan is his latest creation - the friend I went with was scared out of her wits!
