Incredible Glass Microbiology Sculptures

Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations, live arts projects and gifts. Since his professional career as an artist began in 1997 Luke has created a number of extraordinary art projects which excite and inspire people around him. And today, I will introduce his recent work “Glass Microbiology Sculptures”.

These transparent glass sculptures were created to contemplate the global impact of each disease and to consider how the artificial colouring of scientific imagery affects our understanding of phenomena.
