After you read a bit of the article, check out the pictures. I don't know about you guys but that "running man" display is fuggin creeped out to the max. In general the whole concept makes my skin crawl. There's a horror movie waiting to be written there me thinks....

Oh I love those!

They're absolutely amazing, showing the incredible complexity we all have in ourselves. Personally, I think they're quite stunning. Yes, they really squick some people, but every body was donated by someone specifically for this purpose, because they believed it had value, whether educational, aesthetic, or otherwise.

I think maybe my favorite one of his is the horse and rider. The basketball player is also rather intriguing.

My other brain is hung like a horse too.

I'm with Kick on this one. I find them more curious then gross. I especially liked the chess player huddled over the board with his brain exposed.

Hmm... this would have been a good addition to the "I saw a dead body today" thread. It looks like a lot of the people who signed up to donate their bodies have a lot of the same problems with cemeteries that we spelled out in that thread...

I'll grant you that one was kind of neat, as was the horse and rider (real horse?). But that one picture of that guy... with his lips all curled every which way... that was just fucked up.

I really want to see this, I'm planning on heading down there on a day off that I have coming up.

By the way, yes the horse is real. And it's an extremely cool looking exhibit. I can't wait to see it.

Come waste your time with me

They're interesting, but definitely more science than art imo.

A *great* artist along these lines would be Damien Hirst (his earlier stuff anyways):



Mother & Child, Divided, 1993

Great names too, like The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, and Isolated Elements Swimming in the Same Direction for the Purposes of Understanding.

Other Hirst photos here.

So it goes.

Oh yeah, those are great. "And this guy over here, we're investigating the rate of decomposition when one hand is in a bucket of warm water... oddly enough, he *still* keeps peeing himself."
