Hi! I think many of you have heard about this (if not, see here (http://www.bodiestheexhibition.com/about-the-exhibition.html)).
I have the chance to go and see it, but I might be too impressionable... So, what shall I do? Have you seen it, how's it?

PS: another factor to consider, the same day I should have a barbecue with friends, you know, meat, beer...

Go.
Weirdly cool.

IF they have the horse and rider there... That one is a ... treat. (One could be quite hyperbolic about the visceral reaction to this on first view.)

The bbq will have more conversational opportunity, for sure.

Itīs a bit surreal, but not gory. If youīre interested in anatomy itīs a must-see.

I would have to agree that this is a must see. I loved it, but then again I am into anatomy and the exhibit beats the cadavers that I have seen, as far as presentation.

yes, watched some cadaver videos, but honestly, a medic scan (like volumetric)
or something like this is a much better source for us,
(unless you are taking a medic exam or something)
the cadaver videos were just a... mess... :l

Well, I'm not that interested in anatomy but my girlfriend is. She is finshing medics, she's in the last year, so she wanted to see it, just for "fun". But she's seen hunderds of autopsies, she's used to it.
I think it could be interesting if it's not so shocking. I'm a delcate person! :D
DEcided, I'll go. Another thing: better have lunch before or after the show? hahaha
Then monday I'll let you know how it went!

PS: why are you people wathing cadaver videos??!

to learn about anatomy...
problem is it's very-very hard to see what is what
(shape of muscles, distinguish one muscle from the other, etc etc...)

so not really useful for artists...

yes, definitely eat first. (!) :°

Here the tickets are 15,5€, wondering if it's a worldwide price?

There are a couple of these exhibits around. I got to see a traveling one in South Carolina. It's very interesting. I think it was ~$15-20?

Well, They must pay me those 15,5 € to enter... very interesting for my mind not for my stomach :grumpy:

Here in New York the price is $26.50. I have been to see it a couple of times. It really is fascinating and the photos do not do it justice. It is not gory at all.

Please, the next time you post a link lie this, at least have the courtesy to put some sort of identifying, remark about what it is. I regularly scan the forums with my 10 year old daughter looking over my shoulder, not something I'd care for her to see. Luckily I'm at work.

I'm sorry, I didn't know it could be offending to someone. I thought I could post the link since there are just of couple of images that could be a littel bit "strong", but I respect everyone, so sorry.
Anyways, I saw the exihibit yesterday and I must say it's complitely not gory as you said. You don't have the perception that they were people, it has a very academic mood if you understand what I'm saying. And there was even some girls, like 10-13 years old, photographing all the stuff till they were stopped by the surveillance! :thumbsup:
Worth seeing!

autopsies is the worst :/ made me sad to see it...

that was more of a coincidence though, i found it on youtube,...
yep, youtube... i can barely post a picture of a tit for the world to watch,
but children can see autopsies on youtube. (if login status is set to on by parents, be careful)

welcome to the (put in country here) model...

Why did you make me search for autopsies on YT... just why?! :/
I can't understand how my GF can do this things for real, but if they make her an injection she passes out!
Are we going to be banned for posting these arguments?!

wouldn't say making people aware should do too much,
a thread that "falls out" though might be closed.

about autopsy versus injection, only she can answer that i think :]

it's natural to find the stuff repulsive, that came with birth,
it's possible to overcome the built-in feelings though, like they do, if that's wanted.

not my cup of tea though, hardly... :I
though i do find anatomy interesting, just not the yukie stuff... [ugh]

Donīt be ridiculous. Thereīs nothing shocking on that page, and I doubt a 10 year old would even identify those (small) pics as being of cadavers.

When this exhibition was here we had enormous banners of a fully flayed body hanging in the streets for everyone to see.

Yeah, I would rather have a child see this exhibit than some of the people I have had to do post mortem imaging on, trust me on this.

Saw the exhibition in London many years ago. At the time there was some media output regarding whether it was done in a respectful way or whether it was speculative.

Thought-provoking, yes. A rare opportunity, certainly.

It's amazing. A must see for anyone who models/animates the human form.

there are digital references though, so it's not all that needed anymore,
http://zygotebody.com
http://anatronica.com

but for extreme close details it might be good.
but there is also Volumedic that might be of very good help, with the possibility to see just about everything...
