Body Worlds, a traveling exhibition of preserved human bodies and body parts that are prepared using a technique called plastination to reveal inner anatomical structures, is here once again in Singapore. On Saturday, I was invited to the Science Centre Singapore to check out the exhibition. Photography and videography are strictly prohibited but I had special access. Here are some photos and a video that I took at Body Worlds.
Body Worlds feature approximately 200 new authentic human specimens, including whole bodies, individual organs and animal specimens. Of the Body Worlds series, this is the largest collection of exhibits to date.
The latest installation will take visitors through the different stages of human development, from embryonic form to old age. The multi-sensory experience will compel you to reflect on the elegant form and function of the human body, while gathering a better understanding of its fragility under distress and disease. The showcase features our bodies living through time: how we change physically as we grow, mature, peak and wane.
Body Worlds: The Original & The Cycle of Life is now on at the Science Centre Singapore till 6 March 2010. Tickets are $20 for adult and $12 for children 16 years and below.
