325 // MSN1 / Visible Human Project
I read about this project quite a while ago in the book by Dream Anatomy. Now, I came across this short, but interesting and thrilling animation based on the same data from the Visible Human Project.
In addition to that, the book was also mentioning the Finnish artist Jussi Ängeslevä who created this clever installation from 2001 called ‘Bodyscanner’…
“Body Scanner is an attempt to make abstract medical data more meaningful to a non-expert user. It uses body-awareness to intuitively map the content to an understandable frame of reference. Instead of abstraction and rationalisation, the user can access the content directly through bridging their own posture to the displayed imagery.”
