  Corpse-Factory Makes Art  
Posted 2003-11-28 by Tony Walsh
A factory near Dalian, China is reportedly "plastinating" 100 corpses a year for the project "Body Worlds," where flayed cadavers are exhibited as public art.

I can't wait until they make the corpses animatronic and put them into a theme park!

I actually saw this exhibit when I was in London over last New Years. Most of the displays were done very scientifically - health lungs versus diseased lungs, muscle connections highlighted, blood vessels displayed for different parts of the body. There were some displays, however, where the science or art reasoning was hard to recognize - like the cadaver which was dressed as Harry Potter, muscles splayed from its body to give the illusion of speed.

Worst yet was seeing the tattoos of a sectioned corpse, when the sudden recognition that this was a real human being at one point hit me. Not exactly the way I want to be immortalized.

I'm thankful that I had my lunch prior to seeing the exhibit.
