Tōhoku Japanese Earthquake Sculpture by Luke Jerram

About the piece:

This sculpture was made to contemplate the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan. To create the sculpture a seismogram of the earthquake, was rotated using computer aided design and then printed in 3 dimensions using rapid prototyping technology. The artwork measures 30cm x 20cm and represents 9 minutes of the earthquake.

Look for it soon at the Jerwood Space in London for a show called Terra. The show will also include his fantastic virus sculptures.
