Body Worlds at the Science Centre

So it finally made it’s way over to Toronto’s Science Centre.

When this ‘plastination’ of actual, human cadavers first came out, I could have sworn it was at least a year and a half ago when I read about it online. Back then, there was controversy over whether or not this should be deemed as art.

Eww. Not something I’d want hanging on my wall or displayed by the mantel.

Having said that, it is highly debateable regarding the ethics of ‘how far science (or art)’ has gone. Especially when opened to the public.

For those who do not choose to want to see this (as personally, I wouldn’t suggest it for those with a weak stomach), this exhibition is separate from that of the rest of the Ontario Science Centre and it’s also an extra fee.

    The story I heard, was that the previous cadaver exhibit was by a German organization, this one is made by different people. (resists making gross pun)

    I go by this place every day! I do want to go see it actually too. Someone years ago was showing me ‘mutter’ (read – gross human-biological stuff)I guess for kicks when we came across this stuff. Interesting it is. Weird too.
