Sophie de Oliveira Barata: The Alternative Limb Project

London-based designer Sophie de Oliveira Barata, coming from an art background, with a first class honours degree at London Arts University where she studied Special Effects prosthetics for film and TV, uses her expertise for her ‘Alternative Limb Project‘.

The Alternative Limb Project offers a personal and friendly bespoke service, which provides unique prosthetics to blend in with the body or stand out as a unique piece of art, reflecting the wearer’s imagination, personality and interests. An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.

“It’s drawing attention to their disability in a positive way,” said de Oliveira Barata. “Rather than people seeing what’s missing, it’s about what they’ve got.” “Having an alternative limb is about claiming control and saying ‘I’m an individual and this reflects who I am.”
