Vita

The Alternative Limb Project was founded by Sophie de Oliveira Barata, using the unique medium of prosthetics to create highly stylised wearable art pieces.

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.

Sophie collaborates with specialists in fields such as 3D modelling, electronics, and cutting edge technology to create each piece. Clients have included Paralympic athletes, music performers, models and video game companies.
