Memories of the Structure of the Universe is Cristina Guitian’s 38 metre long mural commissioned by the AMC Hospital in Amsterdam to decorate their staff area.

The result is a representation of the human body where the limbs extend the whole length of the corridors.The artwork was hand-drawn in Guitian’s studio in London, digitally coloured, printed on transparent sticker and then pasted on the glass offices of the hospital. Different textures, such as semitransparent frost and opaque white, are used throughout resulting in changes of appearance in the daylight and with the opening and closing of doors.
