The Body Extended: Sculpture and Prosthetics

Guiseley School

“I enjoyed making my own adaptive art, it made me realise how hard it can be.  I understand how far prosthetics has come and how much we take for granted.  I loved it”

Student, Guiseley School

Following their trip to see The Body Extended: Sculpture and Prosthetics, students chose to explore the notion of prosthetic enhancement through the mediums of creative writing and sculpture.

The themes of the First World War were used as a spring board for their creative responses and the exhibition encouraged pupils to consider how they can extend and adapt their bodies and how much is taken for granted.
