Last week Chris and I drove to Boston to spend the afternoon at the Museum of Science. We wanted to see Bodyworlds 2 before it closed on Sunday, January 7th. I had heard others describe it as: gross, disturbing, sacred, grotesque, spiritual, inspiring – I had to go see for myself. To my mind, it is a stunning achievement. To be able to see into the body like that… the words that came to MY mind were as follows: mystery, symmetry, exquisitely complex machinery, vulnerability, and beautiful. I bought the catalog and will add it to the collection on Tuesday, so please come and see for yourself.
