Gunther von Hagens, creator and genius behind the body preservation technique known as plastination, has taken on a new project.
Plastination is a preservation technique developed by Gunther von Hagens that is used to preserve human “specimens” (“see also: bodies”) in their entirety, by replacing all bodily fluids with plastics. Hagens is world renowned for his innovated methods of preservation and is know for his Body Worlds exhibit. Hagens most recent exhibit, Body Worlds 3, is currently in Vancouver BC at Science World, where it will remain until next year.

Gunther von Hagens Body Worlds 3 is coming to Vancouver from September 15th, 2006 to January 14th, 2007.
Body Worlds will be setup at Science World in Vancouver’s False Creek and looks to be quite possibly one of the coolest things ever. Body Worlds features close to 200 real human specimens in all their anatomical wonder. These specimens aren’t your usual human specimens, but are actually plastinates, which is a groundbreaking technique created by Gunther von Hagens to preserve anatomical specimens perfectly. This method of preservation allows authentic specimens to be displayed in an incredibly lifelike fashion, offering a glimpse into the muscular and nervous systems that you have to see to believe.
The Body Worlds 3 exhibition not only features stunning pieces of human anatomy, but also includes animal specimens which are just as intricit and interesting.
