Kalpalace, somewhere way South of Market, San Francisco, CA: Kal Spelletich – Interactive Robotics/Machine Performance.
Review Lynnore Goldfarb: Hmmm… Let’s see, there is a chair that is rigged to literally flip up and backwards with a push of a button, a remote controlled mannequin with a camera in its head that captures its view on a monitor, and a platform on wheels made stand on, that which moves when a remote controlled claw-type metal structure goes up, then comes down, and scrapes the ground thus propelling the structure forward– and that’s just what’s in the entryway. The industrial space is large, dimly lit and full of crazy contraptions that hit, bite, ignite, play music, and cook hotdogs, among other things derived from the imagination of Kal Spelletich.
Comment by AB: Contrivances also on view in the Batcave include a complex suspended kinetic device, complete with video monitor, that slowly dispenses bourbon from a bottle into a shot glass, a bramble of branches that creeps along the floor, and more more more. Brain warp!

  1. […] does things with machines that should be marginally illegal, and probably are. He is having a show this Saturday in San Francisco, which you should go to if you are geographically […]
