In the inside courtyard of the building, an object consisting of 12 horizontally suspended plexiglass panels, that are imprinted with motives from cell biology, is installed. The contours of the translucent spindle forms are accentuated by optical fibers, that bundle towards the center and climb to the top. Interacting with the fine steel wire suspension, a structure is associated, that could be subject of research.
