Alan Rath is known internationally as a pioneer in electronic, kinetic, and robotic sculpture.
Since the early 1980s, he has produced an ever-evolving body of work that ranges from elaborately designed electronic marvels to fluid, kinetic mobiles. All of his sculptures utilize custom electronics designed and fabricated by the artist. Many of his sculptures modify their behavior over long spans of time, some taking year or even decades to exhibit new imagery. Alan Rath: Virtual Unreality marks the first large-scale retrospective survey of this internationally recognized Bay Area artist since his 1998 survey show at Site Santa Fe.
