Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine

The "Perpetual Energy Wasting Machine" is a rope and pulley mechanism which moves an elevator continuously between the 1st and 2nd floor of a building. The system is powered by the sliding doors of the elevator.

The installation was created during a residency at the WRO Art Center in Wroclaw, Poland. It was funded by the Goethe Institute Cracow.
