The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has teamed up with over thirty photographers, painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers, and musicians in order to highlight the effectiveness of immunizations. Techly points to one of the works by artist and scientist team Vik Muniz and Tal Danino is absolutely fascinating. It is entitled Flowers and what the art piece entails is a floral design in wallpaper that is actually made from liver cells that have been treated with the smallpox vaccine. The duo coordinated with MIT professor Sangeeta Bhatia and are quoted by Wired magazine as saying:
“People are quite surprised to realise that the images are made up of real cancer/liver cells and real viruses,” Danino told Wired. “They are not photoshopped. They are equally struck by the fact that beyond the photograph, the cells are alive, move around, and fluoresce.”
The below video details the idea behind this incredible piece of artwork that is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of vaccines and vaccinations.
