Quite old now, but this image was one of several chosen to be displayed in a local hospital ward’s waiting areas and corridors.
My coursemates and I were asked to create uplifting, calming images related to the scenery and landscape around Brighton. Perhaps the most interesting part of the brief was that our work couldn’t be “too memorable”, in case it triggers unpleasant memories for returning patients.
That stuff with floaty windows on the beach I posted here ages ago was for the same thing but wasn’t chosen. There’s evidence to suggest that window views of organic, natural scenes can aid patient recovery, so the idea was that I was making some for the ward – the waiting areas didn’t seem to have any windows at all.
