Yusnier Mentado is a Havana-based independent artist and graduate of the Higher Institute of Art in Havana, where he currently serves as professor of New Media. In his original artwork, Mentado seeks to engage the blurred line where art and technology merge. His piece Evolution of Resistance features a roach being manipulated by a device sending it electric pulses that manipulated its behavior. Eventually the insect realized the impracticality of these robotic elements, ignoring them altogether and rendering them ineffective. Within such works are implications that technology - despite its allure - is nothing to become consumed by. Evolution of Resistance has been featured in Cuban Artists Today, an exhibition hosted by Collectionair.
