(in process)


Prototype for a differential sweat prosthesis that reuses the emanation of body sweat to produce and store electrical energy. The project is a pataphysical suit that reads the glandular orography of the human body to trigger electrical stimuli from a chemical oxidation-reduction reaction.

The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne — Leonarda Da Vinci, c.1503



First prototype - 6-cartridge series circuit made from cotton compresses, copper cables and aluminum rings.




Pattern construction - Structure of rings connected in a series circuit




Compared density of eccrine glands for each skinarea of 4cm2 
Battery sectorization


Electrolysis oxidation - appearance of cyan blue compounds (chlorine) in the copper wire and reddish rust (sodium oxide) in the aluminum ring.
