Visible Humans, part II

This video is based on data from the Visible Human Project which I wrote about back in '05. The aim of the project "is the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. ... The male was sectioned at one millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals."

It's the best video of this project I found on the net. It really shows how different sections can be cut through the 3D model, giving some rather unusual perspectives on it. I even quite like the music.

Made by Les Frère Lefdrup ...

And now of to bed with sweet dreams of traveling through bodies... I'll be good soon and post some proper stuff... promise ... boy-scout honour ... in the near, near future... it's just that not only did my feet stay in Greece - so did most of my fingers on my right hand and a few on the left. Difficult to type. And the net-connection is really slow too.

Ok, I like it. . . but when the bodies started looking like rorschach tests, i got slightly freaked out. A little too abstract and fast for me, maybe.

Hello again! I'm glad that to see the blog back in business & it seems you enjoyed your trip :):)

I was on a small vacation last week too, to croatia, and ended up being the designated fish-gutter in the group and would always think of the images & links from your blog! Then when I started having phantom feelings of scooped-out fishy bellies when I would move the tongue in my mouth, I was going home. It's funny... same texture to the touch - fishy bellies and human mouths.
