Cellsmic was commissioned and realized with the support of the collector, who owns this park. At the center of the pool forty-one bronze cones hold up irregularly shaped plates of glass. Curved aluminum segments arranged in concentric circles on these glass plates suggest the effect of a stone dropped into still water. This is a reference to a quotation from the chapter on natural energies in Leonardo's Atlantic codex, whose place of birth, the village Vinci, is about a mile and a half away from this sculpture park. The glass sheets mirror the surrounding landscape. Solid and transparent, they create a 'frozen' space on the moving water surface.
