Who says a wheelchair should only function?
Driven is the first in the Opulent Mobility series, artworks devoted to re-designing and re-envisioning mobility.
Base: a Nutron R51 electric wheelchair
Upholstery: recycled sofa, donated draperies, plywood, couch cushions and leather jackets
Decor: Salvaged hardware and sewing accessories, including engine ball bearings, vent filters, antique pulleys, springs, washers, zipper teeth, tacks and snap tape.
Driven began as an electric wheelchair donated by a chair-using friend and a dream of re-making wheelchairs as thrones. It was published in 1000 Steampunk Creations by Dr. Grymm.$6500. Please inquire about creating your own customized mobility device.
