A World Within The Human Body
Photographs that reveal an alien planet? No - the breathtaking animated
simulations of the world within the HUMAN BODY
- Animators at the XVIVO studio have produced stunning short movies of the
internal workings of the human body
- The Connecticut-based artists have magnified some areas of the human body by up
to 10 million times
- Produced as part of a project to help students and scientists understand the
human anatomy in a new way
- Amongst the areas captured are bone marrow, the components of a single cell and
individual virus particles
Animators have created remarkable pictures that resemble an alien landscape from
the latest science fiction blockbuster, but are in fact ultra-realistic
representations of the inside of a human body.
Produced by studio XVIVO in Hartford, Connecticut in the U.S., the movies
magnify areas of our insides by up to 10 million times.
The 3D images were produced as part of a project aimed to help students and
scientists understand the human body in new and creative ways.
XVIVO compiled the collection for institutions including Harvard, Pfizer, and
the United States Department of Defence and used replications of electron
micrographs, medical illustrations and photographs to recreate snapshots of
parts of the body at a molecular level.
