• “We must not be exclusively concerned with visible relations
    of forces on a grand scale,
    but also take into account molecular domains
    of sensibility, intelligence, and desire” Félix Guattari, The Three Ecologies (1989)
  • “The authenticity of a thing
    is the essence of all that is transmissible
    from its beginning, ranging from its substantive duration
    to its testimony to the history which it has experienced” Walter Benjamin Art, The Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936)


Energy parasites are handcrafted objects designed from scavenged parts to opportunistically harvest small bits of energy across public landscapes.

Agnostic to energy origin or ownership, these artifacts redirect their captured energy through a variety of means including expressing it or storing it for later reacquisition and usage.

Each parasite collects energy into a small 10 farad 2.5 volt super capacitor.

This energy can be stored, expressed, or transferred to charge a mobile phone or other small electronic device.
