Sculpturi în sticlă: bacterii şi viruşi mortali

Când auzim de viruşi mortali, rareori ne gândim la frumoasele şi/sau complicatele lor structuri biologice. Luke Jerram, un artist de origine britanică, şi-a pus în minte să schimbe un pic percepţia oamenilor asupra viruşilor letali precum Malaria, HIV ori gripa porcină. După nenumărate ore petrecute pentru a investiga atent structurile viruşilor şi pentru a se consulta cu un specialist în biologie de la Universitatea Bristol, Luke Jerram a creat din sticlă replica exactă a viruşilor (cu excepţia dimensiunilor, desigur).
