You want to know how I got this prosthetic? My father was a designer… and a fiend, and one night he goes off artsier than usual. Mommy gets the Tupperware lid to defend herself. He doesn’t like that – not one bit. So, me watching, he takes the plastic to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me and he says “Why so serious?” He comes at me with the plastic lid – “Why so serious?” Sticks the plastic in my mouth – “Let’s put a smile on that face!” and….. “Why so serious?”
The Communication Prosthesis by Sascha Mordmeyer holds your mouth in place, expressing words without the need of a voice. A small pliable red circle shaped in a variety of strange expressions, once installed it holds your mouth open in whatever shape it’s molded to form.
