The Corpus Museum offers its guests an excursion through the human body during which they can see, feel, and hear how the body works. The building, designed by architect Wolbrand van der Vis of PBV Architecten, even has a 5D-heart theater where you, the audience, are a red blood cell. The journey begins at the knee and continues through the uterus (I guess it’s a woman then), the stomach, intestines, the mouth, and finally ending in the brain.
“Dew, milk, pollen, sap, branches, grass, bark, etched glass jars. Resonances between human body and vegetal are suggested by filling with plant elements, scientifical jars labelled with human body parts. The living ingredients inside the jars change and metamorphose though time.”-Mathilde Roussel
