In the exhibition „Transhuman – From Prosthetics to Cyborg“ the HfG shows interpretations and visions from scientific, technological and design findings to overcome human limitations.
The student works range from simply realizable prostheses to extraordinary future designs that are intended to expand human abilities and skills. For example, in the exhibition, visitors can learn about the Simple Limb Initiative, a study collaboration between the HfG and the U.S. San Jose State University and TEC Costa Rica. The initiative showcases solutions for low-cost ergonomic prostheses, such as the one-part knee, a knee joint that consists of only one component and can be individually adapted to the size of the human knee.
The projects from the Strategic Design Master’s focus on the developments and options of body enhancement and cyborgization and address the consequences and ethical boundaries.
The HfG works are juxtaposed in the exhibition with historical prostheses and representations of their functions and areas of application.
Live at the Museum Ulm
