Prostheses—like a deer’s antlers, or grandpa’s false teeth, or Wolverine’s retractable adamantium claws—can be replacements for missing parts of a body, or be extensions that improve functions of the body. The prosthetics can increase the power and size of the body or reveal aspects of the artist’s identity and desire.

The body’s tissues undergo constant renewal, our cells grow and re-grow…so are we the same person we were 7 years ago? Do our new bodies require new social behaviors?

Body Prosthetic: construction of a wearable prosthetic and performance of changed social behavior

Found materials: plastic pipe, plaster, paint, cookie dough, cardboard, paint, panty hose and balloons.
