Biomedical Art: Forensic Imaging + Modeling

Course No. BMA 356-456  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Elizabeth Halasz

This course is an introduction to Forensic Modeling and Reconstruction methods and concepts; which brings materials developed in the medical and forensic industry to the sculpture lab. Materials such as clay, plaster, alginate used in body casting, silicone molding materials, polyurethanes, and clear casting materials will be used in projects that reconstruct facial, and human body elements from skull and environmental clues. The course will utilize the Cleveland Museum of Natural History specimens, and possible visits to local Forensic Agencies for additional hands on applications. Experimentation and integration of sculpture methods to produce body and facial reconstructions will be explored. The course is open to all majors and non-majors as an elective; No previous experience necessary.
