Garage Inventors features a 30-year span of work by artists who exemplify the ethos of Silicon Valley in the form of the genius “garage” inventor.  Many of these artists have deep roots in the Bay Area, and they all channel a streak of “mad scientist” to experiment, discover, and innovate.  Yet their works are more than high-tech marvels.  Each of these artists harnesses their esoteric skills and knowledge to delve into existential conundrums and to explore the metaphysics of emotion, perception and consciousness.
