Sophie de Oliveira Barata. The Alternative Limb Project.
Sophie de Oliveira Barata is a beautiful and wonderful human being. Barata is the mastermind behind The Alternative Limb Project which provides unique prosthetics that are specially designed to blend perfectly with the wearer’s body OR to be an exclusive piece of art made specifically reflecting their personality and interests. This is a beautiful example of how art truly can touch and change the lives of individuals beyond just striking an emotional chord.
“An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.”
