This official audio guide App for Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & The Story of the Heart is the first-of-its-kind App that has been developed for a German traveling exhibition. This fascinating exhibition is a stunning piece of visual impressions, and to top it all, the visitors can now get an acoustic accompaniment on their iPhone or iPod touch, as well. The 90 audio commentaries provide in-depth explanations, inform, and guide – and deliver high-level background knowledge about the many full-body plastinates and body parts. The audio tour is easy to understand, memorable, and without images – the visual component is the live tour of the exhibition, which becomes a holistic experience with this App.
Thus, plastinator Dr. Gunther von Hagens and curator Dr. Angelina Whalley add another element of comprehension to BODY WORLDS. A comprehension that is mediated by the journey through the human body, revealing it, explaining its organ functions, and addressing common diseases. The audio tour touches the visitors on an academic as well as an artistic and emotional level. At the center of things lies the heart with its extensive vascular system and its 96,500-km-long network of arteries, veins, and capillaries. The tour highlights the heart’s aging process, its diseases, and its symbolic importance in religion, art, literature, and pop culture.
We recommend downloading the audio guide App at home before your exhibition visit to maximize download speed and listening to the comments on site with your own headphones.
