Artist's Statement

IKO is a creative prosthetic system designed for children to explore and empower their creativity in a playful, social and friendly way. What if kids could use their imagination to create their own tools according to their own needs; disabled kids needs are not always related to physical activity but often alternatively the social and psychological aspect; what if kids could make their own prosthetics and have fun at the same time? Learning. Creating. Being kids. The project was realized for my degree work in collaboration with: CIREC ( Colombia ) LEGO Future LAB ( Denmark )
