Bodyworks Exhibition Opens At Glasgow Science Centre

Bodyworks is a brand new exhibition at Glasgow Science Centre which features, amongst other things, several displays produced at Amalgam.  This brand new interactive exhibition features nine interactive exhibit zones taking participants through all aspects of the human body from tests of the participant's physical and physiological abilities to reproduction.  Amalgam's specialists were called in to produce a range of displays centered around the bodies cardiovascular system, in particular showing how modern medical techniques can replace heart valves, arteries and even, in extreme cases, an actual human heart with a mechanical pump.

The Shard At Babbacombe Model Village

The Shard at Babbacombe Model Village was recently completed by Amalgam's Architectural model makers. We used CNC'd recycled sheet material to create the rigid weatherproof internal structure of the Shard, and semi-reflective panels to create the distinctive silver external walls and windows. The model stands 3.5 metres tall. The Shard is fully illuminated, and features a rotating camera set into its apex to capture a full panoramic view of Babbacombe Model Village. The Shard model features as the centrepiece for Babbacombe's Easter evening event, 'Illuminations,' with the entire model village lit by lasers and thousands of internal lights in the windows, car headlights and streetlamps of the model village.
