Icky in a cool way or cool in an icky way

Designer Bev Hisey designed these rugs for Radiant Dark 2009 (theme: Elegant Corruptions). Each rug is a sort of representation of giant Petri dishes with magnified bacteria and viruses such as: SARS, Acinobactor, E. Coli, Botulism, Cholera, Influenza, HIV, Streptococcus and Anthrax. Ugh! Appropriately enough all are part of her Dirty Dishes series. All are made of New Zealand wool with the germs rendered with varying pile heights for dimension. They certainly would be conversation pieces - "Hey, how do you like my new Botulism rug? Let's eat!" Ha! See an article about them in Interior Design magazine here.
