In developing a language for the Launceston Hospital Ward 4K, we felt it was important to appeal to a young audience and also their visitors. This way the artwork will engage the broad community of LGH. We set out a selection of criteria to work to, to ensure that we are able to provide a place that is inspiring, bright and also peaceful.
Criteria & Goals:
Each of the artworks within the project should:
• Be playful, whimsical and fun
• Appeal to a broad range of people both young and old
• Be colourful so as to generate a sense positivity
• Inspire the imagination of patients, visitors and staff
• Be welcoming and friendly in their composition
• Be considerate of Mental Health patients
• Capture and highlight the beauty of Northern Tasmania
• Be inspired by native flora and fauna
• Create a sense of well being and happiness
These works are installed in stages, 01: March 2020, 02: November 2020 and 03: is to be installed in May 2021. As the building is completed over a period of time works are still in progress, remaining artworks are allocated for the children's bedrooms rooms, a playroom and a new entrance.
