bodyworlds: art, science, or just plain gross?

i'm not sure how i feel about the new "bodyworlds" exhibit by Gunther van Hagens.

i just saw this on the news and i dunno, it left me feeling kinda grossed out

*edit: all of the bodies in the exhibit were once alive.

It says on the website they are willingly donated by individuals--like donating your body to science. They meet with him beforehand and everything.

I think it's interesting, I'd go see it.

Art, no. Science, no. Perhaps interesting if you are interested in anatomy. My life drawing teacher invited me to a university in Sydney to do a weekend course in anatomy. Real cadavers as models. They themselves are not art.

Damien Hirst territory in a way, with regards to the art of the grotesque.

Obviously different intentions. Bodyworlds comes off as more of a gimmick than a theme.

The human body is art.

Interesting. I'm sure people who are aspiring in the medical field would benefit from looking at a physical version of what they usually would see on posters.

No, it reminds me too much of my anatomy class, which I hated. Very boring.
