Visible Human Project  可视人类计划

The Visible Human Project is an effort to create a detailed data set of cross-sectional photographs of the human body, in order to facilitate anatomy visualization applications.


Jernigan's cadaver was encased and frozen in a gelatin and water mixture in order to stabilize the specimen for cutting. The specimen was then cut in the axial plane at 1 millimeter intervals.


Each of the resulting 1,871 slices were photographed in both analog and digital.


The animation was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment.
这些照片的拍摄方法:在黑暗中,使用电脑全屏依次播放整套1871 幅男性人体切片照片,然后由助理持电脑移动。


The resulting images are long-exposure "light paintings" of the entire cadaver. Variations in the movement of the computer during each exposure created differences in the shape of the body throughout the series.
