Samantha French and Amanda Metcalf worked with HEMI faculty, staff, and students to complete the 10-week program with the end goal of showcasing visual representations of HEMI’s organization, structure, current research, and relationships.

A specialist in data visualization, French used vivid graphic elements to illustrate HEMI’s structure and organization, as well as HEMI’s collaboration with other institutions over the last five years of advancing scientific discovery.

Metcalf, who specializes in interdisciplinary sculpture, worked with the research group of HEMI professor Sung Hoon Kang to streamline her creative process and leverage the group’s knowledge of polymers to fuel her passion for creating sustainable clothing.
