With its sharp metal gnashers and flashing red and green eyes, it looks like a vacuum cleaner gone rogue - a demented Henry, perhaps.

But this simultaneously terrifying and cute critter is actually part of a new exhibition at Brentford's Watermans Arts Centre.

Artist Paul Granjon's show Is technology eating my brain? explores our ever-changing relationship between humans and machines.

He makes robots and other 'electro-mechanical-digital devices' for visitors to interact with and contribute to an ongoing debate about the growing role of machinery in our lives as science fiction becomes reality.

Paul Granjon's 'lab' in Is technology eating my brain? at Watermans Arts Centre, in Brentford
 

Granjon marshals his mechanical army to pose questions about topics from science's sway on our social lives to electronic waste upcycling.

During his residency, which is part of London's Anxiety Arts Festival, the Lyon-born artist has been working with local people to create new work in the gallery space.

Participants have shared their stories about technological anxieties and joys and been given the chance to create their own artwork from defunct electrical goods.

Is technology eating my brain? is at Watermans, in Brentford High Street until June 3. For more information, visit www.watermans.org.uk
