Timothy Bromage, professor of biomaterials and head of the Hard Tissue Research Unit in the NYU College of Dentistry, creates abstract art when capturing hard tissue samples. One of his pieces—an image of the mineral and collagen fibers in the femur of "Lucy," the skeleton of an early hominid from nearly three million years ago—is the basis for the wall covering of the Hall of Human Origins in the American Museum of Natural History.
