Prosthetic Ornament / Eye patch

Prosthetic Ornament
Prosthetic Ornament

Can a disabled person\'s attitude toward his affliction change the way he is perceived and treated by the rest of society? The Prosthetic Ornament is a social investigation of the ever-changing dynamics of the body, identity and disability in society. By using playful eye patches (i-patch) how differently is the user treated compared to the conventional eye patch? What is lost or gained through the use of prostheses? Can loss equal gain?
