This project attempts to offer an extended discussion related to objects as an attachment, as body extension, as interlocutors in how the individual (the body) experience the world. It refers to the physical representation and the many attempts to understand the transformation of both the object and the human body, through their intervention, transformation, re-invention, re-design, and meaningful effects that may produce. A set of elements that will serve to capture, recreate, and redesign my own version and understanding of this interaction. Thus, this project functions as a device of reinterpretation inviting to question and reflect upon artifacts and their modification, body attachments and the ability to modify and reinvent the individual, as well as their public, historical and contemporary discourses, implications, and dimensions.
