What does it mean to be human? 

This unusual online exhibit invites the visitor to uncover what it means to be human by exploring a fantastic assortment of disturbingly informative items from the Mütter collection.

We partnered with the Mütter Museum to create an on-site touchscreen and an online exhibit featuring 50+ of their most compelling objects. This touchscreen, website and mobile experience puts at the visitors’ fingertips a variety of 360 degree spin rotations of objects, stop action unpacking animations of kits and cases, and page-turning displays of rare books. Each object is accompanied by curatorial narrative and popup tidbits throughout, along with archival photographs and drawings.
