Event description

Description

Join Us on August 15th for an exclusive tour of our Bespoke Bodies: Design and Craft of Prosthetics. Tours will be led by Amanda Hawkins, Design Museum's Exhibition Manager, and explore different aspects of the exhibition. From sculpting ocular prosthetics to crowdsourcing affordable 3D-printed hands, this exhibition surveys the past, present, and future of prosthetic design on a global scale. Visitors will explore the evolution and design process behind a range of prostheses through visual stories, historical surveys, videos, and interactive models. Over 40 stories – from DIY-kid inventors to amputees who use mind-controlled bionic limbs – explore the collaborative process between people who use prostheses, clinicians, and innovators all using design to impact people’s lives and mobility.
