Aura: Portable Phantom Limb Therapy Mirror Box, wood, mirrors, wheels, acrylic 2012

Mirror box designed  to relieve pain in phantom limbs. Exploring the interstice between perception and cognition. When the viewer conceals one arm in the mirror box and sees the reflection of the other arm over the concealed one he or she may have the sensation of receiving a new arm. This sensation might reinvigorate the senses and stimulate creativity and cultural production.
