For the Human Body Theater, we created a unique, multi-dimensional projection that visually connects the body’s inner depths with the world beyond. Five programs take a pithy and light-hearted look at complex scientific concepts, making them accessible and relevant.

Human Body Theater Demo

The Human Body Theater creates the illusion of depth and dimension using two screens and front and rear projections – a ground-breaking use of the technology. Viewers feel like they’re following the camera into the human body – even to the cellular level.

Double Immunity

When a poliovirus meets a memory cell, the virus is in for trouble.  In a campy,  film noir-style animation, we dive into the human body for an entertaining explanation of how vaccines work.

Eat, Cook, Evolve

How did cooking food help shape the bodies, brains, and habits of our human ancestors? How might our diets today affect human evolution down the line? Find out in this provocative and engaging program.

Running the Distance

Were we really born to run? Discover the answer as you watch two novice runners train to run the Boston Marathon.

Brain Storm

Whether a man is playing football or a boy is throwing a punch, the physiological changes that take place in their bodies are the same. In this high-intensity program, visitors find out how aggression is an adaptive evolutionary trait.

Switched Before Birth

What can mice tell us about how healthy a newborn human will be?  A whole lot, as it turns out. This program takes visitors into the human body to explore the evolving field of epigenetics.
