‘Manual Modes’
2016/17
Remnants of prosthetics production, acrylic sheet


Manual Modes is an scenic installation on-site utilising the remnants of a prosthetic workshop. The sculptural interventions are employing solely process plastics that did not become part of the wearable brace. Much like museological artefacts, these inverted cut-offs have an abstract spectral presence rather than a direct function. Subsequently the installation is an enquiry into absence of physical use value of art, as well as the disservice of the cubical office environments for the bodily condition.
