Going on tour after you have died

San Diego artist Ariane Brittany wants to go on tour -- after she's dead.

Brittany has signed on as a donor to "Body Worlds."

The traveling exhibits feature actual human corpses with their skin removed and insides exposed.

The bodies are preserved with a process that replaces fluids and tissue with plastic.

Organizers say more than 10,000 people are now registered to become so-called "plastinates" after death, including Brittany.

"Body Worlds" opens in western New York today, at the Buffalo Museum of Science.
