{{http://www.jameswsullivan.com, James Sullivan}} is the Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor, Professor of Sculpture at the Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University.

Sullivan's sculpture is centered on the body, located in the figurative image itself as well as through objects that construct a more haptic abstraction of bodily forms, spaces and experiences. Much of his recent work has been developed in digital form, using haptic modeling and CAD systems coupled to 3-D printing and prototyping as well as industrial fabrication. He has lectured widely, on sculpture, materiality, the locus of the body in material images, and the meaning of digital approaches to sculpture in relationship to haptic experience and the physical self.
