Investigating Normal: Adaptive and Assi

About this Blog

Adaptive Assistive: Investigating Normal Technologies is a course taught by Sara Hendren, artist, design researcher, and professor. The goal of the class is to investigate assistive devices and the narratives surrounding them.

In this course, I have chosen to investigate prosthetic limbs specifically. The goal of my investigation will be to examine how these types of devices can be used to reflect their user’s identity, and function as critical and interrogative pieces, above the practical function they already perform.
