An interactive art exhibition on the theme of human organs has just opened in Lausanne. Visitors can - among other things - crawl inside a giant eyeball.
Four metres high, the eyeball is big enough to accommodate two or three people. British sculptor Jan Niedojadlo has also created his own versions of a heart, a womb and a brain.
"Obviously, children understand it completely," he says. "For adults who go to exhibitions where you can crawl around inside sculptures it's a bit of a break from the norm where you stand back and look at the form and colours.
"I'm asking adults to step out of the gallery and enter another world. It's basically breaking away from the tradition of perceiving things just visually. I want grown-ups to open up the child within them."
Niedojadlo tours factories to collect the materials for his sculptures, which are all made from industrial waste which is recyclable.
The exhibition, at the Museum of the Hand in Lausanne, ends July 16.
