The exhibit, Inside Out: The Visible Human, opens August 9 and will be
on display six months before traveling to other science institutions around the
The display showcases the work of renowned artist and photojournalist
Alexander Tsiaras who used data generated by the Visible Human project in
which an adult male body was electronically imaged, photographed in one
millimeter sections, then digitally processed and recorded. Although the data are
now being used extensively by researchers, physicians, and educators, Tsiaras's
work is the first to interpret the images for the public.
Sample images and more information about the Visible Human project (in
addition to the male, there is also now a female) are available on the World Wide
Web at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/.
