Challenging stereotypes with fantasy
Today, she's putting the finishing touches on a custom leg prosthesis for dancer, Andrew Greggory. It's part limb, part kinetic sculpture that moves hypnotically as Andrew dances. It's the kind of thing that wouldn't make sense anywhere but in Andrew's world. However, once in place and in motion, everything clicks. Another masterpiece. But it's not just a one-woman show, Sophie is quick to credit the team she worked with; Andrew for the inspiration, Chris Parsons who helps fit the limbs, and fellow sculptor Ivan Black who made the kinetic metal element. A true dream team.
