Art & Design at Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Intermediate Care Unit (ICU)
Arts Connect is involved in updating the artwork in this Unit. Staff have chosen a new ‘Woodland’ theme, with photographs of well-known southeast London woods and parks to help patients relax and recover. Features include photographic window film for the visitors’ waiting area, acrylic framed photographs for the corridors and bedrooms, new digital display monitors, showing changing woodland images. The photographs will change with the seasons, to help patients regain a sense of time during recovery.
‘A Sense of Place’ Children’s Unit Corridor Artwork
AS Level Graphics students from nearby Corelli College have been working on ten new striking designs destined for the entrance and corridors to the Children’s Unit. As inspiration, they have included images of well-known local Greenwich landmarks such as the O2, Cutty Sark, University architecture, Thames Barrier, Emirates Airways and green spaces. Safari Unit patients have also produced drawings which may be incorporated into the final designs.
The Ramps project redesign
The large canvases in the Ramps corridors have reached the end of their lifecycle and will be replaced during 2014. Arts Connect has led the consultation on the new colour scheme for this space and the provision of panoramic photographic lightbox feature.
