Intersculpt is a global, networked exhibition  of digital sculpture realized through  computer-aided design, manufacturing, and  digital networks. This exhibition was  established in 1993 by l'Association Ars  Mathematica in Paris and has been held  biennially around the world. Artists from all  over the globe contribute 3-D models to a  central location via the World Wide Web in a vetted contest; the winning sculpture designs are then printed in 3-D format in cities throughout the world. 

The CANVAS Gallery presented Intersculpt 2007 in two thematic approaches: "mathematics" and "biomorphism." The first celebrated classical mathematically-derived and inspired sculpture, while the second conveyed the present artistic revival of cybersculpture inspired by "shapes of life"—humans, cells, animals, plants. The sculptures were presented both virtually, as 3-D objects in the CANVAS space, and physically as printed via computer-controlled machines. Intersculpt 2007 was simultaneously Webcast from L'Ecole Nationale Superieur des Artes et Metiers (ENSAM).
