The Alternative Limb Project, Unique, Surreal, and Unreal Prostheses


By Kimber Streams on April 5, 2013

Prosthesis designer Sophie de Oliveira Barata has launched The Alternative Limb Project, a studio that designs unusual prosthetic limbs. The studio offers three options: realistic, surrealist, and unreal. The surreal options could include bionic components, 3D reliefs, or even skin that appears to transform into that of another species. The unreal options, like the stereo and crystallized prostheses of model and singer Viktoria Modesta, can incorporate other materials like metals, crystals, and even secret compartments.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
