Media Partner #61: Sara Hendren and Abler

At the Disability Visibility Project, we love examinations of disability, design, technology and bodies. We’re so glad to have Sara Hendren and her website Abler as our latest media partner!

About Abler (from the website):

I’m tracking and commenting on art, adaptive technologies and prosthetics, the future of human bodies in the built environment, and related ideas.
