Alan Rath’s kinetic sculptures poetically integrate the human and the technological. Many incorporate computer-animated still images of human features, such as eyes, mouths and hands, displayed on LCD screens. These screens are mounted on sculptural armatures and the images are programmed to change in subtle progressive permutations. The screen images often appear to be involved in some form of communication.
