PROSTHETIC.SEMINAR

The "PROSTHETIC.SEMINAR: Architectural Probes, Cyborgs, and Cybernetic Environments" was a research-based graduate technology seminar taught by Marta Nowak and Iman Ansari at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design in Fall 2015. The projects illustrated here are the work of students in that seminar.

EAR.360

EAR.360 by Ammar Parghalwala, Shui Yu, and Richard Ruiz. This hearing device captures the surrounding sounds to provide a more balanced and focused hearing. The exterior 3D printed shell contains a small motor inside to rotate in order to adjust the desired level of hearing from the surrounding. Photo by Austin Yu.

EX.DENTURE

EX.DENTURE by Shiqi Fan and Yunxuan Guo. This extrasomatic denture mask uses 3D printed dental implants to extend the basic functions of human dentition beyond mastication or enunciation, to new functions, such as nail biting/ clipping, holding a cigarette, or blowing a whistle. The implants can be selected based on individual preference to customize the denture. Photo by Austin Yu.
