One of my dream projects, perhaps when I’m retired, would be to create my own museum. It would all about the human body, and would take guests through an Osmosis Jones × Magic School Bus-esque tour through different organs and organ systems throughout the body.
There are so many characteristics and functions of the body that are complex, but can be understood and observed in other contexts. I had some really amazing teachers throughout my academic career who made it easy to understand big ideas through relatable and simple comparisons, and once I was able to make those connections I would get super excited about the subject. The goal of my museum would be to evoke similar feelings in my guests. And coming up with creative ways to showcase how amazingly complicated, but reducible, the body is sounds like a lot of fun.
What’s your dream project?
