MaryFreeBed East Beltline Hand Clinic

This piece signifies healing through an artistics process. Many times, when patients comes to us, they feel hopeless. They are unable to participate in the occupations of work, play, and self care that give their life meaning and purpose. We believe that disability does not define you, you define you. This project demonstrates that with volition, anything is possible. This piece consists of four letters spelling out the word "HOPE" constructed out of therapy materials. The "H" will be constructed out of patients' orthoses that have been discontinued from their treatment. The "O" will be formed around a digital slideshow of pictures of patients performing tasks they previously couldn't perform since their injuries. The "P" will be formed out of equipment and tools we use in our life roles. The "E" will be a mosaic fabricated from the work of many hands.
