Horror Art

08/28/2005

Gunther von Hagens is a professor of pathology & anatomy who
invented and uses a plastination technique to preserve human tissue
and
complete corpses to exhibit them as works of medical art.
His exhibitions have raised eyebrows across the world
and are an
extravagant bridge between medical science and experimental art.


The Bodyworlds-pages are packed with information on his projects
(among them
a dvd called anatomy for beginners, a series of anatomical
lessons by him and british pathologist J. Lee), information about the
plastination technique and of course pictures of the preserved bodies
and bodyparts, beautiful as well as disturbing sometimes, see for yourselves !!
