(CCA) | Gilbert
Gilbert is an exploration into empathy. In his ongoing Tourette-O-Tron series, Andrew Frueh explores his own relationship with Tourette’s Syndrome. These artifacts are designed to turn the host into a Tourettic cyborg – to induce specific Tourettic motor tics in the user. Sensors allow these devices to interpret the behavior of the human host, and analog programming creates the fluid responsive behavior required to simulate a disorder like Tourette’s.
