ConferencesThe alternative limb project

The alternative limb project was found by Sophie de Oliveira Barata using the unique medium of prosthetics to create highly stylised wearable art pieces.

Drawing on her own specialist skills in making ultra realistic looking limbs, Sophie collaborates with specialists in fields such as 3D modelling, electronics and cutting edge technology, and works in conjunction with in-house prosthetist Chris Parsons at Design Prosthetics. Clients have included Paralympic athletes, musicians, models, performing artists and video game companies.
