the alternative limb project creates surreal and unreal prosthesis

founded by sophie oliveira barata, the alternative limb project allows wearers of prosthetic limbs a unique opportunity to express themselves. barata, a prosthesis designer, creates surreal options including bionic inspired limbs, 3D reliefs, and even skin that appears to transform into that of another species.

the alternative limb project offers three options: realistic, surrealist, and unreal. these prostheses can incorporate a wide variety of materials including metals, crystals, and even secret compartments. sophie enlists various specialists in fields such as 3D modelling, electronics, and cutting edge technology to create each piece of art. clients have included Paralympic athletes, music performers, models and video game companies. barata designed one for model and singer viktoria modesta decorated in crystals and speaker components.

‘as with fashion, where physical appearance becomes a form of self-expression, sophie sees the potential of prosthetics as a extension of the wearer’s personality’, it explains on the website. merging the latest technology with traditional crafts, sophie’s creations explore themes of body image, modification, evolution and transhumanism, whilst promoting positive conversations around disability and celebrating body diversity.’
