The research and creative activity of College of Arts and Architecture faculty members is on display in a series of approximately three-minute videos produced by Cody Goddard, multimedia specialist for the college’s eLearning Institute, and Cynthia White, research associate. The first video features Cristin Millett, associate professor of art and sculptor, whose research has focused on the history of western medicine and how our understanding of human anatomy has developed from the second century B.C. to the 21st century, when technology has drastically changed how we visualize the body.

The video shows how she uses 3D scans instead of molds to create plastic models, and then works “subtractively,” carving material away using a CNC router or even a robotic arm.

“It’s just another tool — it’s like a hammer for me," Millett said. "It’s just that it’s coming from a computer source, and then translating it into technology, whether it’s a 3D printer, or robot, or CNC machine.”
