I presented my work and talked on 2 days at the very amazing Conference presented by the one and ONLY David Pescovitz

As smart machines enter more realms of our lives—from workplaces and homes to farms and city streets—we will redefine what machines can do for us, where they will outperform us, and ultimately, what it means to be human. Robots have long been a staple of science fiction, capturing the popular imagination for nearly a century. Now, driven by military, consumer, and health care research, advances in robotics are catching up with popular imagination. Robotic systems are not only vacuuming millions of living rooms, but have also been deployed into active war zones, and navigated thousands of miles of roadway without human assistance. Indeed, within just the last five years, the number of robots in operation worldwide has more than doubled.

This Country Just Can’t Deal with Reality Any More
As Election Day 2010 approaches, the consequences of the nation’s three-decade-old decoupling from reality are becoming painfully obvious.

In comparison to very tall trees, the San Francisco artist Kal Spelletich suggests, people are losers.
Passing through the flame one by one, the hot dogs are like tiny damned bodies suffering in a miniature hell.

and more……

German Art Critique of current show up at Jack Hanley:

Mehr Gutmenschen in New York
Dem Künstler Kal Spelletich sind die Hybriden aus Pflanze und Maschine für seine Ausstellung in New York nicht ganz geglückt. Doch spricht er darüber, können ihm die Worte nicht groß genug sein. Der Besucher fühlt sich indes in der Galerie wie auf einem Jahrmarkt.

The artist Kal Spelletich are hybrids of plant and machinery for his exhibition in New York not quite succeeded. But he talks about him, the words are not big enough. The visitor feels while in the gallery as on a fair.

poor weenies

The ominous-looking device looks as if it belonged to the household of “Mad Max”. Hot dogs are skewered and over a flame in a circle it around. The poor sausage.

Hundreds of dogs cooked by the one-an-only Ivory Serra!

are hybrids of plant and machinery for his exhibition in New York not quite succeeded.

Crown of the New Yorks!

Kal Spelletich selbst spricht von einem „Frankenstein“, den er da geschaffen habe - von einer „unheiligen Allianz“,

Last Days of my Fundraiser

Bill Viola Statement
The acknowledgement or awareness or recognition that there is something above, beyond, below beneath what is in front of your eyes, what our daily life is focused on.
There is another dimension that you just know is there, that can be a source for real knowledge, and the quest for a connection with that and identifying that is the whole impetus for me to cultivate these experiences and to make my work.
And on a larger scale it is also the larger driving force behind all religious endeavors. There is an unseen world out there and we are all living it.

1997 catalogue. Whitney museum, David Ross-Peter Sellers
