VIRUS

Plasma Virus

The corona situation has very little to no impact on my work life. I am used to working in isolation and without contact. However, my wife has been working as a nurse in the intensive care unit at Kufstein Hospital for over 20 years. This was converted into a Corona Intensive Care Unit at the beginning of the pandemic and has since been available, as needed, for the treatment of people seriously ill with Corona. Thus, the topic of Corona is also permanently omnipresent in our family.

By the way, all, partly very different representations of Sars viruses are just too predestined for the plasma light technique. A neutral spherical center with fine, more or less, uniform spike attachments.

This pragmatic approach is the main reason why the production of plasma virus sculptures started already in 2020. Initially after quite small size was permanently pushed to the limits of what is feasible for me.
