The exhibit is divided into 7 parts.
Walking through the exhibit, I had to remind myself that these were actual living breathing human beings at one time. It was really hard not to objectify them. It was equally hard for me to picture someone allowing this to happen to them or a family member donating their loved one's body for this. Though the exhibitors claim that these were donated bodies, I can't help but wonder if it was 100% true given that all the bodies were from China, a country not really known for upholding human rights.
Truth be told, morbid curiosity drew me to this exhibit, knowing all the controversy surrounding it. And though the guides were trying to focus on the educational aspect of the exhibit, very scripted as it was, I wonder where do you draw the line between education, questionable art and ghoulish entertainment.

update: I saw this, of what at first I thought was a mannequin or a replica, but is actually part of the exhibit, called Skin Man, displayed in a shop in GB5 for promotional purpose. Tasteful promotion or insensitive tactlessness...you decide.....
