sascha nordmeyer: communication prosthesis

politiciancommunication prosthesis is a unique object designed by sascha nordmeyer which aims to communicate for its user. the object is a small, rigid red circle which is inserted into a user’s mouth. once installed, the prosthesis holds the mouth open and forms strange expressions. nordmeyer describes the project as a research concept that is ‘the ultimate communication tool’. in addition to the device itself, nordmeyer also created this series of photographs featuring various professionals such as a politician, a midwife, a craftsman and an actress wearing the prosthesis. the pictures and the prosthesis are both available in limited editions.

  • Frightening to say the least. He should take it to the extreme and have different emotions. Hints of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” music video from the 90’s
