Ever try to draw a picture of malware? eWEEK never has, but artists Alex Dragulescu and Julian Hodgson both have. Using digital imagery, the duo has crafted a showcase of art depicting three-dimensional images of virus code. The pictures will be displayed at an art show hosted April 22 by Symantec as part of this year's RSA conference in San Francisco. To bring the malware to life, the artists used a special application to analyze virus code that uses the code's values to create a 3D image. From there, the image is transferred to modeling software, where it is positioned and lit to best capture the aesthetics of the model. The final image is then rendered for presentation. There will be a total of 20 pictures on display, including six new additions to the threat art collection as well as a new visual synopsis collection depicting the services of Symantec's MessageLabs. Here is a sneak peek at some of the sights visitors can expect. (All photos courtesy of MessageLabs, now part of Symantec.)
