Glass Microbiology

A UK base artist Luke Jerram had transform the deadliest microscopic virus that kills millions of lives into some beautiful 3-D glass sculpture.

About the Glasswork
This body of glass work has been developed since 2004. Made to contemplate the global impact of each disease, the artworks were created as alternative representations of viruses to the artificially coloured imagery we receive through the media. In fact, viruses have no colour as they are smaller than the wavelength of light. By extracting the colour from the imagery and creating jewel like beautiful sculptures in glass, a complex tension has arisen between the artworks’ beauty and what they represent.
