Knit Virus

A while ago I knit this "virus" for my friend, artist Caitlin Berrigan. She instructed me on the structure/geometry/math of a Hepatitus C virus (individual pentagons combine with triangle shaped 'flare ups' which make a geodesic dome...) and I took it from there. She wanted a wearable garment with a hood and I think the result is strangely futuristic and fashionable...

Thehepatitis C virus is externalized in this wearable garment knit into a pattern of the virus’s protein structure. (Hand knit silk & wool.
