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.
