Example text

Next, lab workers use a precision planing device, a cryogenic macrotome, to shave off millimetre-thin slices of the body. After each slice, the cross-sected profile is photographed digitally and scanned into a computer. The resulting data set constitutes the basis for an unlimited series of three-dimensional simulations. In 1995, the digital body of the Visible Male became available for public use, followed one year later by the even more detailed data set of the Visible Female. 4 The VHP has presented the digitized Visible Human as a revolution in anatomy.

It should be emphasized that I do not believe that the VHP directors made a conscious effort to situate digital dissection in a European Renaissance tradition. My goal was merely to elucidate how the current practice of compiling and disseminating digital body data reflects and constructs persistent cultural norms involving age, gender, spectacle, identity, transparency, and crime and punishment, and how these various norms are historically interrelated. 33 Just as public dissections in the Renaissance reflected and constructed contemporary norms regarding the body, the design, materialization and dissemination of digital cadavers articulates our current norms with regard to the body and its transparency.
