Designed in consultation with virologist Dr. Andrew Davidson from the University of Bristol in England, using a combination of different scientific photographs and models, the sculptures were made in collaboration with a team of specialized scientific glassblowers. Through them the artist reveals the fascinating tension between something that is unusually beautiful but which is also extremely dangerous and plaguing humanity.














Luke Jerram is an inventor, a researcher, an amateur scientist and a multidisciplinary artist. Currently he is a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton, England.














Jerram is the recipient of numerous awards and grants and his extraordinary projects and installations have won acclaim in cities around the world.
