Computer Virus Sculpture #9:

S3 Video Virus (2013)

The sculpture is a representation of the Mammalian Orthovirus.. The inspiration for the Computer Virus sculpture series in general came in 2009 when I first saw Russell Kightley's image of the HIV-1 envelope shown on the left below. Since then I have learned that there are many other biological virus that have icosahedral shapes such as the Mammalian Orthovirus on the right. This virus with nodules at each vertex was the inspiration for the S3 Video Virus sculpture.
