BIONIC ART IN ZERO GRAVITY
AURELIA Horizon 2022 Flight
MAA / Zero-G Corp.
This project is part of Viktoria's long-term research around assistive technologies through application of radical design. #WhereNecessityMeetsImagination
As a Mission Astro Access ambassador and a multimedia artist, Modesta is passionate to reveal the opportunities that a reality without gravity presents, in relation to our bodies, fashion and environment.
“The experience of zero gravity is a gateway to reimagine ability, expression, communication, and the human identity.”
On this flight Viktoria explored augmented form and movement - wearing sculptural fashion by otherworldly designer Izzy Du, and microgravity-adapted prosthetic limbs designed in collaboration with Alternative Limb Project & Koleman Prosthetics.
The leg was fitted with an electromagnet for modular detachment and interchanging capability. All three limbs feature a vertebra-like fluid design that will be capable of robotic function with further development.
