- The goal
It was harvest season and my father decided to take along 3 year old Cornelius. We were going to help a few of my uncles gather the seasons yeild of cotton.
Standing on the outside deck of the cottonpicker, my uncle proceeded to drive over a stump hidden amoungst the crop. The machine tipped over and landed ontop of me. The injury →
The impact of the machine landing ontop of me tore one nerve from my spine and overstretched 3 others. As a result I do not have a right pec, lat and tricep muscle. But the biggest impact has been very limited use my right hand.

The goal →
I am desiging an assistive glove to compensate for the lost function of my right hand. More than restoring use of my right hand, it needs to be beautiful. It must be fashional and spark conversation of "what is that" and not "what happened."
