Bodies…the Exhibition leads guests on an intimate, education-packed voyage through the human body and its collection of intricately assembled systems. Numerous actual full-body specimens and more than 100 real human organs—each meticulously dissected and reverently displayed—provide a behind-the-scenes peek into anatomical inner workings, from the corporeal hard drive of the nervous system to the intricate skeletal framework that protects vital organs and the heart’s WiFi modem.
Meanwhile, Dialog in the Dark strips guests of their sight before weaving them through the streets of a New York City shrouded in complete darkness. Equipped with an authentic walking cane, sightless participants follow the lead of one of the exhibition’s guides, each of whom is blind or visually impaired. Relying solely on other senses, groups will traverse various urban environments, where the rumbling palpitations of the subway, drifting aromas of Times Square, and frustrated whispers of underpaid stop signs volunteer a brand-new outlook of familiar locales.
The genius of this presentation . . . is that for the hour or so it takes to make your way through its mysteries, you really are blind.Edward Rothstein, New York Times, 8/18/11
