'Cells of Life' consists of eight landforms and a connecting causeway which surround four lakes and a flat parterre. The landforms mark the entrance to Jupiter Artland and reference the cellular process of mitosis. Viewed from above, the layout of 'Cells of Life' reveals how cells divide and multiply, presenting the cell’s early division into membranes and nuclei in a monumental celebration of the microscopic basis of life.
