Lisa uses a paper-rolling technique called quilling to create exquisitely detailed cross sections of the human body. She spoke about her work at the independently organized TED conference, which focuses on the future of health and medicine.
I love her observation that viewers’ curiosity about her art technique leads naturally into considerations of biology. STEM to STEAM, anyone?
