A series of paper sculptures by Lisa Nilsson, an artist based in North Adams, Mass., was inspired by the Visible Human Project–a 1994 NIH initiative in which the body of a convicted murderer was frozen and then cut into nearly, 2,000 cross-sectional slices which were then digitized and put online. The idea behind the project was to create a highly detailed “virtual cadaver” to facilitate scientific inquiry.
