These transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the doctoring of scientific imagery affects our visualisation of phenomena.
Viruses never looked so good…
Smallpox, HIV, and an ‘Unknown Future Mutation’
These glass sculptures are designed and created by Luke Jerram, and are on exhibition in London at the end of the month. Luke also has a number of other creations, including a candle which puts itself out automatically (to cut short lengthy dinner parties), a talking engagement ring, and a wedding ring with inbuilt projector!
