Heather Badger is an artist in Ghana whose passion is to mix modern and traditional art forms, using computer technology. She does this in shadow boxes.

She uses computer art software and laser engravers to help fashion shadow boxes, as they're called. These three-dimensional, glass-framed cases hold brass motifs that incorporate Ghana's age-old Adinkra symbols. There are dozens of these motifs, with a proverb or parable related to each one. Adinkra symbols are also printed on cloth and used in jewelry and other creative forms.

Heather Badger is a Ghanaian artist whose passion is to create shadow boxes that mix traditional and modern art forms using digital computer technology. These began as framed brass sculptures, incorporating centuries-old Adinkra symbols - wisdom that doubles up as Ghanaian proverbs - with a new artistic twist. NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton introduces us to the artist at Artivity, Badger's home and studio in Ghana’s capital.
