“Probably Chelsea,” a touring art installation by Heather Dewey-Hagborg, uses DNA from Chelsea Manning to generate facial models, which were then 3D printed on equipment at the LaGuardia Studio. Manning was sentenced to prison for passing government secrets to WikiLeaks and was later pardoned by President Barack Obama. The exhibit and the models produced at the LaGuardia Studio were also featured on the Getty Images site.

Rodriguez, MD, DDS and the NYU Langone Medical Center’s Hansjӧrg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and Face Transplant Program. LGS staff have been involved with 3D scanning and printing incredibly detailed, lifelike masks for face transplant donors.
You’ve arrived at a train station. Where it is, who can say? What brought you here? That’s unclear. Maybe you’re searching for something, or running away from something. Maybe you just felt like wandering. As you stand on the platform, a man calls you over. He seems to know more about you than you know about him, or about yourself.
Bjork has long been interested in the intersection of technology and nature. In June of 2016, Bjork appeared onstage at the Tokyo Miraikan Museum wearing a mask designed and printed by professor Neri Oxman at MIT’s Mediated Matter Lab based on 3D scans of Bjork done at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio.
The Laguardia Co-op is the flagship location of NYU’s three Student Technology Centers, located at the heart of the Washington Square campus.
