Art

Hold your breath for micro-sculpture: Willard Wigan on TED.com

Willard Wigan tells the story of how a difficult and lonely childhood drove him to discover his unique ability — to create art so tiny that it can’t be seen with the naked eye. His slideshow of figures, as seen through a microscope, can only be described as mind-boggling. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2009, July 2009 in Oxford, UK. Duration: 19:43)
