Art opening This Friday And A Fare Thee Well


 

Final Jules Exhibit 2
Hello All,

I am in a group show CELEBRATION This Friday, March 8, 2019 from 6-9 P.M. at the illustrious Jules Maeght Gallery, 149 Gough St. SF, Ca.

à la prochaine

I will be exhibiting a Robotic Heart that plays a Pipe Organ. Your heart (an organ) triggers the artificial heart (organ) powering a pipe organ. Organs Sound The Body.

Also, I have a slab of marble with fossils in it etched by a laser cutter of a drawing by Charles Darwin.
Two prints done in Paris at the historic Maeght Atelier print shop.
Get them here!

Annnd a print of a drawing of my Robotic heart!
Maybe some other things, I dunno.

This will be the last exhibit at their gallery as they are sadly heading back to France, but we gain a Paris outpost!

Come see the Jules Maeght All Stars one last time!
Until the Next Time.

I want to thank the amazing Stochastic Labs for supporting me with the development of my artificial organs project. We are well on the way to creating a quintet of organs playing organs. http://stochasticlabs.org/

AND of course the brilliant Jon Foote! http://www.rotormind.com/

There will be food and drinks and kisses on both cheeks and then some!
It has been such an honor and joy working with Amelie, Jules and Luc. If you haven’t been to one of their special openings let alone the gallery get on down there this Friday!

Warm embrace,
Kal

Theory:
Can I build sensors that sense the human soul?
I aspire to go beyond utilitarian rationales of capitalist production into poetry, this is one of the most noble functions that biotechnological art can perform. I am reference science fiction and historic scientific experiments to champion science. These human organs are playful and a metaphor for survival, a meditation on our health care crisis, and a witness in the aging process. Building backup organs by someone who has never had health insurance brings a highly personal direction that is a new challenge.
What is it like to make your own functioning prosthetic organs? To print something that speaks directly to the implications of 3-D printing? What does it mean to print backup organs?
It is now possible to maintain life activity even after communicative life has stopped. It is possible to maintain a person alive but devoid of autonomy. The autonomy is granted by a machine. My proposal reverses this. Through audience interaction, human hearts, movement and breath feed the machines and grants them energy, and in a way, life.
