My Hand Project
As a youngster, I was involved in an accident that destroyed the muscle development on the right side of my body.
My father had taken me to join my uncles on the field to spend the day harvesting cotton. Working away, no one spotted the the remnants of a tree that had fallen into the crop. As we drove over, the cotton picker tipped and fell on top of me.
As a result, a major nerve in my right shoulder has been severely pinched and prevented natural growth.
The physical damage is the most visible, but the emotional struggles have been the greatest challenge. I've decided I will no longer allow it to hinder who I am but rather work on creating a unique me.
I am designing and building a hand attachment that will improve the functionality to my right hand. This project is driven by design. I want it to be beautiful and different. I want it to stand out and spark discussion. This isn't about going back to what it was but moving forward and creating something new.
