Waking the Machines: Assistive Technologies and Prosthetic Agency

On August 14 & 15, the Inclusive Design Research Centre will be sponsoring a three-part event series called “Waking the Machines: Assistive Technologies and Prosthetic Agency” led by Sara Hendren, an artist who develops tools, applications and devices that examine adaptive technologies and possibilities for prosthetic agency.
