Rodin’s Hands at Stanford

without comments

There is a really interesting exhibit happening at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford.  I believe it opened just yesterday, and will be there until August 3rd.  It’s called Inisde Rodin’s Hands: Art Technology and Surgery.  You can read Stanford’s coverage of it directly here.  Or you can watch this video with James Chang speaking a bit about noticing specific physical maladies in Rodin’s sculptures when he was an undergraduate, and how this project grew from that observation.  Now he incorporates the study of these sculptures into his hand surgery educational program where students diagnose and correct the maladies observed.


Sarah Hegmann, who I went to school with, put together this animation bringing Rodin’s hands to life as part of the exhibit.
