Do you remember the awesome knitted brain we posted about a few weeks ago? We may have just found the rest of the body.
Canadian artist Shanell Papp knitted this life-size reproduction of a dissected human corpse for an awesome and elaborate Lab installation that includes containers and displays for each of the internal organs. It’s the coziest gross anatomy class you’ve ever seen.
Shanell “has long been fascinated by death and the human body. This installation of a human body being dissected was an expression of that interest:
“To make the work, I borrowed a human skeleton from the university and collected anatomical textbooks. I also managed to track down a mortuary gurney for displaying the work–a mortuary gave me a gurney after a renovation…they were looking to get rid of it since “people are were getting too fat for the gurney.” I also worked in an old hospital turned history museum. I also went to open house day at a local funeral…they gave me a decorative pen. During my graduate studies, I was granted open access to the gross anatomy lab, though I was long finished making LAB/skeleton at this point. I was given access to draw, look around…. It is always funny how specimens are collected and cared for.”
Dragonair! This one was a bit difficult, but I think it turned out pretty good in the end.
