Preserving a Jaw | 2014

5.9"x5.5"x3.7" | Sculpture | 3-D plastic printing

This is a 3-D plastic sculpture printed from CT scan images of my husband's jaw before it was excised due to the damage by heavy does of radiation treatment. The right lower jaw was one of the dead and also fractured skeletons caused by high-dose and overlapped radiation therapies. The intention to preserve and represent the lost and damaged parts of the patient through technology is to provide the possibility to reconstruct its discontinued or removed body memories.
