Leonor Caraballo and Abou Farman take MRI’s of Leonaor’s breast tumor and create a digital model that is then turned into a 3D print. Eventually this cancer turns into a bronze jewel. When viewing the artwork at an art show a doctor states, “these tumors are saying something.” Could this art have turned into a research project? A great example of how art can show something that otherwise might have gone unnoticed. If this is not STEAM in action I don’t know what is. ( STEAM the educational initiative of combining science, technology, engineering art and math.)
