This issue's cover features work by Yuko Oda, associate professor of fine arts. Oda was inspired to create her sculptural installation series, “The Unbearable Lightness and Heaviness of Being,” during an artist's residency where she worked on an organic farm. She explains: "My farm task was weeding, and as I got my hands dirty with the earth, the idea of roots combining with butterfly wings came to me." To create the delicate sculptures, she used Autodesk’s Maya software and rapid prototyping 3-D printing technology. "The The 3-D modeling technology was an essential tool to make this transformation," she says. "Parts of the sculpture are so intricate that creating them without 3-D printing technology would be nearly impossible.”
