Star Trek Beads Sculpture At Microsoft

Microsoft’s Studio D offices in Redmond, Washington have something that every Star Trek fan would love to have in their own home. However, it probably came at quite a price! The work called Mirror Universe by sculptor Devorah Sperber is based on images from the 1967 episode Mirror, Mirror. In this episode the crew encounter their evil counterparts from a parallel universe.

The sculpture is composed of a series of very familiar characters in the process of beaming up. Spock, Kirk and McCoy are actually made up of semi translucent beads as the close ups here show. When viewed up close the image blurs somewhat but from a distance are almost photographic in their realism.
