Project: Tracking and commenting on art, adaptive technologies and prosthetics, and the future of human bodies in the built environment.

“The grant was absolutely critical to fully realizing the project: it made possible my partnership with a fabricator and web site designer and made the occasion for the work to be included in multiple lectures, panel discussions, and 3 gallery/museum shows (and counting!)This major project has also been a key portfolio piece for my job applications as a full time professor. The work has been critical to my demonstrating the real possibility of speculative and discursive public arts and design.

I'm pleased to say that the grant helped get me a full time job teaching as a design professor, which guarantees me the financial stability and flexible time and research resources I need to keep doing my life's work. This new development can't be overstated in its important to my sustainable practice as an artist.”
