Priscilla Sutton, curator of the Spare Parts exhibition poses with some of the art work  that has been all based on artists using prosthetic limbs that will be included in the show, at her home during a interview with the Associated Press in London, Tuesday, Aug. 15 2012. Prosthetics can change the life of an amputee. But when an old limb no longer fits or just gets worn out, it can be hard to part ways with an item that offered the liberating chance to jump, dance or simply walk. Priscilla Sutton has a solution: turn these “pre-loved” limbs into artwork. The Australian curator came up “Spare Parts London,” an exhibition of altered prosthetics that has opened in time for the Paralympic games which start in London Wednesday, Aug. 29.(AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
