Bespoke Bodies Exhibition Incorporates Student Work
The University of Hartford is hosting a traveling exhibition exploring the past, present, and future of artificial limbs through Oct. 9.
Bespoke Bodies, an exhibition created by the Design Museum Foundation, incorporates work done by students at the University of Hartford and considers traditional artificial limbs as well as a broad range of physical, aesthetic, and cognitive human enhancements. Recent advancements in design and manufacturing have created many new possibilities in the field.
Adding to the Design Museum’s exhibit was an interdisciplinary project that included visual communication design and fine arts students in the Hartford Art School; students in the orthotics and prosthetics program in the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions; and the Boston Design Museum.
