Hospital Art Installation
Commissioned by Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.
Our brief was to create a piece of artwork for the Charnock Ward Secure Unit. It was very important that the work had input from, and was relevant to, both staff and patients. The aim was to create a calming, more uplifting atmosphere, to bring the very high ceiling space down without being over imposing and to create work that would improve the light within the space.
Over 4 weeks we ran 4 sessions with inpatients creating mood boards and effects with colour, shape and 3D structures. The work from the sessions was of such high quality that canvasses have been printed up and displayed around the hospital. The final piece was designed from the work produced in these sessions and also from conversations with staff. A photographic record was kept throughout the whole process and passed on to the trust and commissioners.
