“My work gives you a front-row seat to God’s puzzle,” says Alexander Tsiaras, 51. He’s not kidding. President and CEO of Anatomical Travelogue, Inc., in New York City, Tsiaras is a multimedia da Vinci whose visualizations shed stunning new light on the human body, whether it’s a baby in the womb or a dancer in motion. With the help of 55 employees and about 45 terabytes of hard disk space (that’s 45 trillion bytes), he combines cutting-edge four-dimensional medical scans with artistic vision. The result: powerful images for books (such as The Architecture and Design of Man and Woman, 2004), films, websites, museum exhibits and medical research. He has ambitious plans for more books, television documentaries and even IMAX films to “help people understand the body more intuitively, and in a more engaging manner,” he says.
