In 1997, Mike Tyson bit Evander Holyfield in the boxing ring, and was disqualified from the fight. In an interview with Rita Cosby, Tyson discussed many things, including his unusual perspective on the heavyweight crown:
“The title is love.
I’m not always going to be love.
The title is love until the day it dies.
It doesn’t care about you, me.”
I used this quotation in designing a set of dental prostheses with which any user could deliver Tyson’s message. I modeled the prostheses in Rhino, and printed them in ABS plastic. Each one has a line from the quotation in raised, reversed text across the lingual surface.
