I have used Rebecca Horns work as research for my project due to the fact that her pieces portray an extension on to the body. I specifically chose to look at these two pieces as even though they restrict the body, they also adapt the body in order to function differently. For example, the finger gloves, while restricting small hand movements, can however allow the wearer to reach further, adapting the body and its ability to reach further away.
