Discover the inner terrains and outer borders of the human landscape with The Human Body Exhibition.
GForce Exhibitions announced the İstanbul, Turkey debut of an exciting new exhibition of real human bodies and specimens. The Human Body Exhibition, featuring more than 200 carefully dissected full and partial body specimens, provides a unique, three-dimensional view of exactly what lies beneath the skin, showcasing the miracle of the human body and how it functions.
The Human Body Exhibition engages visitors with a life-changing journey through nine galleries highlighting the essential components of the human anatomy and illustrating the effects of smoking, obesity and other damage that can be caused by neglecting the body. Visitors will be able to compare a healthy lung with a black lung severely damaged by smoking. Evidence of the damaged specimen shows how some people may take better care of their automobiles than they do their own bodies.
The specimens featured in The Human Body Exhibition were donated in accordance with Chinese law to the Dalian Hoffen Bio-technique Laboratory which engages in research and innovation of the Plastination technique, and produces, preserves and provides specimens to medical schools and the general public for educational purposes. The laboratory uses the Plastination technique to preserve the specimens. Through the Plastination process, human tissue is permanently preserved using liquid silicone rubber that is treated and hardened. The end result is a rubberized specimen, preserved to the cellular level, showcasing the complexity of the body’s many bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and organs. The full-body specimens can take over a year to prepare. All specimens are treated with the outmost care and respect.
