This project seeks to explore the following questions; If identity is fluid, how could a facial or body prosthesis, as a way of dynamically altering the body, change the user's social identity?

Prosthesis are playing an increasing role in the extension of our senses and physical abilities, constantly modifying and deforming our bodies. One of the oldest examples of body extensions is clothing. An ancient prosthesis developed for protection, which over time became such a strong social convention, that it is now illegal in most countries to be without it. A contemporary example of a prosthesis that extends our bodies is the smartphone; a device so essential that it never leaves our sensory periphery. Since the advent of the digital age, this phenomenon has accelerated. Over the past two decades, more and more efforts have been devoted to research and investment in the development of portable technologies, making the cyborg images of the previous century's cinema and science fiction literature slowly become reality.
This piece replaces a conventional lip augmentation, avoiding surgery and achieving a juicy and fleshy effect on the lips.
This piece replaces a conventional rhinoplasty, adjusting the shape of the nose to the patient's taste in such a way that, with its nuts, it can be gradually reduced.
This piece replaces a conventional otoplasty, reducing the noticeable projection of the ears in a natural way, the patient being able to regulate this projection.
Variation of the previous model by replacing the turnbuckle with a simple cable. Unlike the previous one, in this one the tension provided by the cable cannot be regulated.
This piece replaces a conventional rushupplasty, improving the patient's posture to avoid muscle and bone problems, ensuring an upright position.
This piece replaces a conventional mastopexy, allowing the improvement and lifting of the breasts in an adjustable way by the patient. The tensors make it easier.
