Intention Machines Praying Robots by Kal Spelletich

Artist Kal Spelletich (previously) has created a series of life-size “praying robots” that mimic various forms of prayer for his upcoming exhibition Intention Machines. The kinetic sculptures, which include a whirling dervish and a genuflecting robot, are covered in the clothing of people who have profoundly affected Spelletich during his life. Intention Machines takes place April 11 to May 23, 2015 at Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.
