From earthquakes and data visualization, we move on to microbiology. Jerram has created a menagerie of glass pieces that depict viruses and the like. Here we see the microorganism that causes malaria.
"Made to contemplate the global impact of each disease, the artworks were created as alternative representations of viruses to the artificially colored imagery we receive through the media," Jerram -- who is color-blind -- says on his site. "In fact, viruses have no color, as they are smaller than the wavelength of light. By extracting the color from the imagery and creating jewel-like beautiful sculptures in glass, a complex tension has arisen between the artworks' beauty and what they represent."
