Carolyn Henne is a sculptor. Henne’s sculpture is largely informed by anatomical studies and her interest in low-tech interactive works. Her work ranges from large, complex interactive installations to more straightforward, discrete objects. “Suspended Self Portrait”, is in the permanent collection at the National Museum of Health and Medicine and was featured in the NIH’s exhibition, Dream Anatomy. Henne is the Co-Director of CommaBox and she is the Head of the Sculpture Area in FSU’s Department of Art.
Henne was part of a team of arts, engineering, and business students and faculty working with VCU surgeons to develop a prototype for a life-like surgical trainer. Subsequently, she collaborated with surgeons to develop prototypes now being replicated and employed to train surgical students and shared at workshops internationally. She has a Courtesy Faculty Appointment with FSU’s College of Medicine.
