The Experimental Body Extension Manufacturing Unit (EBEMU) is an ongoing project where ideas about physical body extensions are explored and prototypes of Wearable Hybrid Body Augmentations partly made from discarded material sources are constructed by a team of leading artists working in close contact with voluntary workers recruited from the local community.

The artists (Gazzola & Granjon) provide a fully functional temporary manufacturing unit and a selection of ready-assembled prototypes. The workers contribute ideas for new products and take part in their construction and presentation.
