The 30-foot-tall hanging sculpture is seen by thousands of people each day. Manglano-Ovalle collaborated with many partners including scientists and engineers to create BlueBerg (r11i01). He refers to the work as “a structure of support. And I think that’s a good metaphor not only for Cleveland Clinic, but also for the human body when it should be in a healthy state."
