Doug Bucci is an artist and educator in the field of jewelry whose work utilizes digital processes to explore and display biological systems and the effect of disease on the body. Computer aided technologies allow Bucci to view and simulate not only data but patterns and cell forms, which can be transformed into meaningful, personal and wearable art. Bucci views his digital process as one that allows for a creative freedom unfound in traditional handmade methods.
