On February 27th, 2012 Lauren Rudeck (La Ru) was hit by a car while crossing in a crosswalk in front of her house. She tore the ligaments in her wrist which required surgery, physical therapy, and eight arm braces over nine months. Without the use of her left hand, she was unable to create art as she was used to. She began drawing on her splints to liven them up and make the situation slightly easier to handle. The splints opened a new world for Lauren to draw on other everyday 3-dimensional objects such as chairs, clocks, shoes, and more. LaRu'd is a collection of these splints and everyday objects altered by La Ru.
