Extremeties

If look up the word ‘disability’ in the dictionary, synonyms such as ‘incapability’, ‘disqualification’ or ‘incompetence’ speak volumes. The focus is completely on limitations. Not for Simas Zabulionis. In a series of imaginative prostheses for amputees, he reveals a world of possibilities. From a screw-on xylophone arm to an artificial leg that can inflate to make a seat, his experimental approach shows that the only real handicaps are created in our own minds.
