Hello, Biscuit listeners and welcome to a freshly baked edition of The Biscuit Podcast, celebrating Charlotte’s creativity every week.
Today’s show is Creative Mornings Rewind, features hosts Tim Miner and Matt Olin speaking with plastination expert Jamie Decker, following her May 3 Creative Mornings Charlotte event, where Jamie spoke about the global theme of “Preserve.”
In 2007, Jamie visited Discovery Place Science in Charlotte to see Body Worlds created by Dr. Gunther von Hagens. Seen by more than 44 million people, Body Worlds is known as the most visited exhibition in the world.
Jamie had an interest in anatomy ahead of the trip, but having the opportunity to experience an extensive exhibition showcasing plastinated human cadavers and specimens stirred something within her that she didn’t know was there: passion. This is what she wanted to do.
In this episode of Creative Mornings Rewind, Jamie talks about how life experiences can inform scientific discovery, what people should know about their bodies, what she wants her legacy to be and what body part she’s going to plastinate next.
Register for the next Creative Mornings Charlotte event Friday, June 7 at 8:30 a.m. at Discovery Place Science in Uptown. The featured speaker will be local artist, educator and entrepreneur Rebecca Henderson, speaking about the global theme of “Wonder”. RSVPs will open at 9 a.m., Monday, June 3.
The Biscuit Podcast is produced by Tim Miner, Matt Olin and Andy Goh. Music by Harvey Cummings.
