The Art of Science: the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID vaccine
The beauty of science captured in glass
While recovering from COVID-19, internationally renowned artist Luke Jerram was inspired to sculpt in glass a single nanoparticle of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, one million times its actual size.
“It became clear to me that my next artwork should focus on the vaccine — our way out of this global crisis — as a tribute to the scientists and medical teams who have been working collaboratively across the world to fight the virus.”
