Artifacts > On the Move

Skulls represent the vessel that holds that grey matter we hold most sacred. As our species has moved through time the resulting adaptions and morphologic changes to the human skull identify us as the species we are today. In the most playful of tones I have utilized the skull of Turkana Boy, via an open source file shared by African Fossils, a virtual artifact collection of discoveries made by the Leakeys and those associated in Kenya. I was able to transform the virtual artifact back into a physical object via ceramic 3D printing.
