Luke Jerram - Virus Glass Sculptures

Using high-resolution electron microscopic images, Luke Jerram has created accurate glass scultptures of viruses and bacteria including HIV, E. Coli, SARS and H1N1 (Swine Flu). It is truly a sight to see these menacing and harmful subjects in 3D and they even have a documentary showing a making of the HIV glass sculpture.

There is a documentary on the creation of the HIV virus sculpture found here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhWgq8622Mw&feature=player_embedded
