giving voices to ghosts

with her work back, here below, formidable (the rebirth of prehistoric creatures) marguerite humeau, attempts to ressuscitate the sound of extinct animals by reconstructing their voicebox. Made of soft tissue, the vocal tract does not fossilize. The only elements which have been preserved through time are their bones. By comparing them with the larynx CT scans of their closest modern relatives, Humeau hopes to be able to deduce what the vocal organs of the extinct animals looked and sounded like. With the help of a specialist of each animal, the designer plans to remodel the soft tissues of the modern animals on the basis of the bone structure of the extinct one. The structure of the soft tissues will then be printed in 3D.

    oh my gosh. I fell in love with a wedding invitation you created. I’ve seen many but none of them have that personal touch I have been looking for. I came across this invitation you designed that had fireflies, and a couple holding on to a tent.
    I live in Fair Oaks CA, my wedding is June 18th. I know I don’t have a lot of time.
    I was wondering how much would you charge for something similar.

    I only have about 75 guests
