Kal Spelletich: Significance Machines and Purposeful Robots, on view from July 25 through December 8, 2019, presents thirteen interactive sculptures and three dialogical photographs by the San Francisco artist, Kal Spelletich (b. 1960). A leader in the machine art scene, Spelletich has lived and worked in South San Francisco for 30 years. His art merges obsolete materials into constructed machines that interact with humans in unexpected ways.
This is the first museum solo exhibition for machine art master Kal Spelletich and it is accompanied by a catalog with essays by Anuradha Vikram and Tanya Zimbardo. A longtime San Francisco robotics artist, Spelletich’s work explores the boundaries between machines and humans. Purposeful Breathing Pillow replicates the artist’s own breathing patterns with uncanny effect.
