Prosthetic Party

I don’t really work in an office anymore, a situation to which there are pros and cons. Pro – I get to wear my pajamas to work and play with my cats while watching true crime shows and getting things done, cons – company Christmas parties are kind of small and not very exciting. Luckily this year I had the good fortune to be invited to another person’s party – at a prosthetic limb studio. What a fantastic experience, the walls and tables are all lined with custom made silicon molds and limbs and they even have their own full time tattoo artist to add personal touches at the patients request.  I was permitted to photograph as I pleased while enjoying the catered nibbles and open bar.

  1. Wow. And full-time tattoo artist? Wow.

    I like the lighting on these.

      thanks terry.

      i had to use a flash because of the low light party atmosphere and when i uploaded them i didn’t care for the results in color so i decided to desaturate and degrade them a bit. i was happy with the floating limb effect.

      p.s. they feel really cool too. warm rubbery silicone that *almost* feels like flesh.

    Those photos are awesome, really nice. lighting, composition. Joel Peter Whitkin would be proud…

  3. I like too, mouldmaking and all. I just hope someday robots aren’t made too human this way. Robots should always have claws, or “grippers”.
