Perpetual patience machine
Iván Abreu (CU/MX 2019)
Ortesis is a series of wearable kinetic sculptures to compel the user to adopt certain behaviours. Perpetual Patience Machine forces the user’s hand into a repetitive motion reminiscent of robotic labor. The incessant ticking of finger against the surface, a ‘clicking’ motion, speaks to cognitive labour.

Iván Abreu (Havana,1967, naturalized Mexican citizen), artist and programmer who works and lives in Mexico city. He explores the veracity and instrumental capacity of science and technology in art contexts, and the possible poetic and/or political value of the findings that emerge from these crossings, as a consequence through processes like visualization, interaction design, industrial design , software and web development, engineering and electronics, expanding the possibilities of drawing, graphics, digital media, photography, sound art, video, sculpture, and architectural and urban installation.
