Plastination

Plastination is the technique that replaces all the water i a body (or body-part) with a polymere (silicone, acryl, epoxy etc.). The technique is devellopped by the german anatom Günther von Hagens and can be seen in the exhibition BODY WORLDS.

It is not a technique that I use (yet).

More about plastination can be read in my Master-thesis:

 with
 three
 sets
 of
 conservator
 eyes
 -­
 the
 conserving 
eye,
 the 
storing 
eye 
and 
the 
mediating
 eye – 
­
is
 there 
a
 conflict 
of 
interests?

My thesis (in danish) is available for download here.
