For their groundbreaking anatomy exhibit Body Worlds The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry hired Chicago Flyhouse to create a custom display for the exhibit ticket counter in the lobby that would be as arresting and exciting as the exhibit itself.
Featuring more than 200 human bodies preserved through an extraordinary method called “plastination” and arranged in a wide array of activities, one of Body Worlds most arresting pieces features a basketball player in mid stride.
The 14′ X 14′ ticket counter display featured a highly detailed graphic of the basketball player, printed on a thin material.
To project the graphic from the wall, Flyhouse’s team designed and fabricated a delicate steel frame with only three points of support, giving the player the impression of floating freely overhead, and enhancing the dynamism of the image.
