IC 3D Archaeology Visualization Team conducts ground-breaking laser scan of 250-year-old papier-mâché decorative ceiling at Philipse Manor Hall in Yonkers, NY
Contributed by Michael 'Bodhi' Rogers on 08/02/2015
Professor Rogers, his team of physics students Evan Van de Wall '15 and Ryan Fedora '16, and Dr. Scott Stull used a NextEngine 3D laser scanner to take readings every 0.1 millimeter across various elements of the ceiling. The papier-mâché decorative ceiling at Philipse Manor Hall is one of only two such ceilings still intact in the United States. Other traditional conservation and preservation methods are not helpful due to the fragile nature of the decorative elements.

Carole Dennis, Julie Dorsey, and Lynn Gitlow, faculty in the Department of Occupational Therapy, had an article published recently. The article, titled “A call for sustainable practice in occupational therapy” appeared in the Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy (June, 2015: vol. 82, no. 3, pp. 160-168).
The paper presented the view that human activity, or occupation, is inseparable from the environments in which people live. It reviewed threats to human health from environmental degradation and climate change, and linked concepts of sustainability with occupational therapy philosophy and practice. It presents a call to occupational therapists to promote sustainability in research, policy, and practice to help build a sustainable future.
