BODY: an immersive night-time installation

Meet BODY, a new immersive outdoor installation exploring human biology through light, sound and fire. 

As the pandemic raged across the world, Walk the Plank turned its attention to the human body: a place of peril that can be invaded by a virus, but also a place of wonder and enquiry. During lockdown, inventor Richard Babington and Walk the Plank’s team of ever-creative explorers created BODY, a playful night-time installation that can be delivered safely in accordance with CV-19 protocols.

Inspired by anatomical science, BODY is an outdoor immersive journey through six different zones, mixing human biology with light, special effects, sound and fire. Using cutting-edge technology to create a deeper understanding of the science of the human form, BODY has been designed to inspire young and curious minds and offers a range of options for educational engagement in STEAM subjects.


BODY is designed for installation in the grounds of venues and museums, festivals or at any other event that inspires curiosity. If you would like a special tour of the installation or would like to have a conversation about how BODY could work at your festival or venue, contact
