As the COVID-19 pandemic raged around the world, inventor Richard Babington and Walk the Plank created BODY – a playful night-time immersive installation inspired by anatomical science.
The human body is a fragile and perilous thing – but it's also a place of wonder. BODY invites audiences on a journey through six different zones, mixing the magic of human biology with light, special effects, sound and fire.
Using cutting-edge technology to explore the science of the human form, BODY has been designed to inspire young and curious minds, and offers a range of options for educational engagement in STEAM subjects. The work is designed for installation in the grounds of museums and other venues, at festivals or at any other event that inspires curiosity.
BODY delighted audiences at its premiere, which took place in 2021 at the British Science Festival, and has also wowed audiences at the NI Science Festival 2022, Science Week 2022 in Dublin, Ireland and Beakerhead 2023 in Calgary, Canada.
