For the modern art there are no obstacles. Sometimes it fulfills a very practical function – it creates the connection between scientists and art lovers. The series of sculptures made of glass called “Glass Microbiology” presents bacteria such as HIV, Escherichia Coli, the swine flu virus H1N1 and the smallpox virus. Dadusch, the glass artist wants to create a three-dimensional representation – an alternative to the usual colored images of bacteria and viruses and to bring scientific topics closer to people.

For his glass sculptures Luke Jerram Get help from Bristol University virologists to reproduce the structures and sculptures as accurately as possible. In fact, you can see the individual functional units of the virus in great detail.
