Steve Hollingsworth is a Scottish based artist who uses specifically designed art projects to connect with severely disabled people. One project has involved motivating a young man called Ben who is profoundly disabled and quadriplegic, to reach and use his right hand for the first time in his life. Below are two short films of Ben in the Sensorium Steve designed for him. Through connecting with Ben, Steve was able to understand his likes and dislikes, and built the entire project around Ben's preferences, so essentially Ben built it himself, with Steve as architect and joiner! Key, is that Ben can control this environment himself.
Steve's work demonstrates the enormous potential in everyone. More information on Steve Hollingsworth including other projects can be found at The Ideas Team.
