NJTV‘s Maddie Orton visits the Digital Atelier.

At the Digital Atelier in Mercerville, creating sculptures is something out of a sci-fi film, replacing hands and chisels with computer-operated machinery and lasers.

Clients include artists like Jeff Koons and Kiki Smith, and companies like Disney/Pixar.
