Artist Statement:

    Experimental Body Extension Manufacturing Unit (EBEMU) is an ongoing project where ideas about physical body extensions are explored and prototypes of Wearable Hybrid Body Augmentations partly made from discarded material sources are constructed by a team of leading artists working in close contact with voluntary workers recruited from the local community.

    The artists provide a fully functional temporary manufacturing unit and a selection of ready-assembled prototypes. The workers contribute ideas for new products and take part in their construction and presentation.

    The Experimental Body Extensions Manufacturing Unit presented a new range of extensions on June 16th as part of ISEA2013 in the College of Fine Art, Paddington, University of Sydney, Australia.

Other Information:

    This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its funding and advisory body.
