Smallpox, HIV and an ‘Untitled Future Mutation’


E. coli

SARS Corona Virus


Multidisciplinary UK artist Luke Jerram worked in collaboration with glassblowers Kim George, Brian Jones and Norman Veitch to create a stunning series of glass virus sculptures. Created over a period of 5 years in consultation with virologists from the University of Bristol, the transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the artificial colouring of scientific imagery affects our understanding of phenomena.
Beautiful, deadly works.
