Abstract

This was sculpture exhibited as part of a Design 4Science exhibition and series of seminars at St John’s College Oxford. The sculpture five related constructions , were the result of a period of research aimed at using sculpture as a means of revealing more difficult aspects of science to a wider public. This research explores in a sculptural way something of the way evolutionary processes enable viruses to change and how in new forms they become “events” - pandemics - linked to place and time.
