Last evening, I was walking down my local promenade in Santa Monica and noticed a new temporary exhibit opened to the public in one of the many vacant retail spaces. It happened to be the second iteration of the fairly successful BODIES exhibition where well-preserved, and purposefully dissected human bodies were respectfully placed on display for educational purposes. I ended up spending a full 45 minutes taking in all of the great displays of the intricacies of the human anatomy, and made about a dozen images to share here with you smile. The only thing which inevitably crossed my mind was that perhaps Vlad had already arrived in L.A. wanting to surprise the local members of WPS biggrin........ 

Vlad arriving in Santa Monica??? xD

Now, this is a pose worthy of a true Dracula=))

All heart smile

This is disgusting

And very unethical. But so is the mummies exhibit at the Met.

The bodies of political prisoners from China.

I was certainly curious about this!

Much appreciate the article! Cheers, Filip

Yes indeed. Extremely questionable work…

 By: Fat Bastard : May 15th, 2022-00:14
And highly inappropriate in my own view. It reminds me of some horrifying experiments made in WW2 for the so called advance of science.

I'm not sure that I would refer to....

the human body as 'disgusting' - we all have one, but being an extreme ethicist, I am certainly concerned with these types of public displays being done with pristine ethics.... Cheers, Filip

not only are there no age restrictions, bringing children in order to learn about human anatomy is encouraged. Hey, I'd take this sort of clean, airy space display of immaculately plasticized bodies to visually educate myself anyday over what my mother ha...

I saw the first exhibition in LA (probably 10+ years ago). Wifey and I took our young daughter, who was absolutely fascinated by the displays, which included some animals as well as the human specimens. A must-see for anyone in the medical fiel or artists... 

Me as well!

It was so long ago that I only remember having seen it, I don't remember any of the details other than I enjoyed it, and that it wasn't as elaborate as the new one. There's clearly a number of professionals who can benefit from seeing an exhibition like t... 

I think it is more appropriate and respectul if it is at scientific museum exhibition setting

 By: Gelato Monster : May 18th, 2022-02:04
rather than art display at retail area. just my 2 cents Nonetheless it is very interesting and intriguing display of Human but for me personally difficult subject to see as an art.

I agree with you,

 By: InHavenPro : May 18th, 2022-03:33
The fact that the location itself happens to be a totally random temp lease store is genuinely odd. If this was at the California Science Center, like the first one, I think it'd be inarguably more appropriate a setting. Cheers, Filip
