Chocolates shaped like Hep-C

Chocolates shaped like Hep-C

Food hackers at the Sentimental Objects in Attempts to Befriend a Virus have created a jar of gourmet chocolates shaped like the Hepatitis C virus:
A model of the virus was printed as a rapid prototype from a 3D algorithmic illustration of the virus from the Protein Data Bank. The chocolates were then cast into the molecular form. Part of the Sentimental Objects in Attempts to Befriend a Virus series, the truffles do not carry hepatitis C. Desire to eat them is mixed with a repulsion for the virus, a dialectic which has proved to be an exciting and approachable way to ignite discussion and create awareness about an extremely prevalent and underrepresented disease.
