Prosthetic X is a speculative project by designer Isaac Monté and In4Art. Prosthetic X showcases an artificial “data organ” with interactive aesthetic prosthetics that can be worn and provide insight into personal health data.
The opening will be during Hoogtij. The installation exists of 10 interactive prosthetics, a speculative scenario film and a ‘Data Donor Register’.
Prosthetic X is a project about the future of healthy aging in which art and technology intersect, opening the dialogue about e-health and data privacy. It speculates how non-invasive health tracking tools could give us insight into social, mental and physical health. It would empower empathy, celebrate knowledge and combat the threat of loneliness, isolation and health conditions for an aging population. The shadows of aging would fade away and unleash a new beauty ideal.
Isaac Monté is a Belgian designer based in Rotterdam, with a fascination for unusual materials and an urge to master and manipulate these materials.
Prosthetic X can be visited on Saturday 27, Sunday 28 November, Saturday 4, Sunday 5, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 December between 14:00-17:00.
On Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 December we’ll be serving a comforting carrot curry soup with fresh baguette for just €5,50 so you can warm up on these drizzly days.
Prosthetic X opens during Hoogtij, The Hague’s contemporary art tour. The 67th edition takes place on Saturday 27 November. During Hoogtij you can visit several locations in the inner-city of The Hague: from white cube to underground; from established art in galleries and institutions to installations and performances in artists initiatives.

Prosthetic X is a project by Studio Isaac Monté and In4Art. The prosthetics have been made interactive with the help of Léon Spek. The videos are made in collaboration with NOBS.
