800mm blown glass sculpture of HIV. This sculpture was created in response to the constant bombardment by coloured images we receive through the media. Many of these images are designed to communicate fear. The artificial colouring of images also affects what we think a virus looks like. How many people believe a virus to be bright red and yellow?
This representation of HIV is a complex three-dimensional transparent form. The sculpture was designed using a combination of different scientific photographs and models and made in collaboration with glassblower Kim George.
