The human body consists of practicable elements that can be easily manipulated and engineered. Through surgical procedures our bodies can be stretched, shifted and sewn, yet still be functional. What then would stop us searching for a higher level of function than we have now? Especially if it may have the potential to benefit a younger, more vulnerable and malleable generation.

‘Transfiguration’ depicts designs for potential body enhancements that have been surgically implemented to benefit a child. Each modification is put in place to solve a potential future problem for the baby ranging from medical to environmental to social mobility issues.
