Viral Jewelry

Well it has been nearly 17 years since AIDS was first recognized as a problem in the world. Since then, AIDS has taken more than 25 million lives. Designer Andriy Kurovets believes it is time to bring new attention to a virus that has brought so much misery around the world. This jeweled cross sectioned accessory is modeled in detail after the virus that causes AIDS. Not really sure why someone would want to commemorate a killer like this so beautifully (or not) but it reminds me of artist Andres Serrano’s “Art in the Age of AIDS” haunting collection.
