Item Details
Catherine Wagner's Cell Wall II is the frieze located at the entrance to the School of Nursing in UCSF, Parnassus Avenue. The piece is fabricated from porcelain enamel and was created by scanning electron microscope images of biomineralized sea sponges, a multi-cellular organism. Catherine Wagner reworked and digitally cloned the image thousands of times over to create the appearance of floating cells.
