Prosthetic X - Isaac Monte


Anemone Movement - PX III – Stimulating daily activity This prosthetic consists of five elements placed on the eyebrow, and is intended to signify and encourage active living. Under the recommendation that we move and take ∼8000 steps a day, this prosthetic responds to steps and movement and 'opens up', incentivising the wearer to keep reaching new goals.  Each time the wearer has reached a new goal, a new element lights up. At the end of the week, the wearer could have five shining elements, showing the wearer's vitality.    materials: UV… Monica Monté, Isaac Monté
