Coronavirus Paper Model

2020

Coronavirus Paper Model (2020), is a free downloadable paper-craft sculpture of the Covid-19 virus.

Click on the link below to download the file and print at home – regular paper is fine, cardstock is preferred. Assembly tutorial is below.

The assembled Coronavirus Paper Model can be used as a tangible focus for meditation or ritual object to process feelings about the virus and the global pandemic.

This project is an extension of my previous artwork, Viruses, (2010), for the public to build and interact with visualizations of real, imaginary and computer viruses as physical objects.

Feel feel to tag images of your finished model on social media as: #coronaviruspapermodel

Visual identiy of Coronavirus model based on the work of Alissa Eckert & Dan Higgins, medical illustrators at the Center for Disease Control.
