Cleaning House

"Cleaning House" by Michael Brown and David Cole

Located in the COCC Health Careers Center, "Cleaning House" is a stylized, but medically accurate, representation of part of the human immune system identifying and destroying foreign objects. The COCC Health Careers Center trains nurses, dental techs, massage therapists and other practitioners whose goal is to help keep us healthy. This suspended sculpture is a model of healthy blood cells flowing through capillaries at 35,000X magnification while three white blood cell macrophages attack bacteria cleaning house and keeping us healthy. An accompanying wall panel was developed with scientific advisors to help explain basic immunology and the wonder of how our blood functions on a microscopic level.
