Hospital = Magical Forest

Great Ormond Street children’s hospital has a new art installation. One corridor has been fitted with a magical forest that responds to movement in the corridor. As children move down what was previously a big scary white corridor, they see glimpses of animals running through the trees.

I like that the animals are kept as┬ápatronus type shadows (I’m sure the technology forced this in some way) because it makes it all the more whimsical. And anything that makes hospital more friendly for kids is a good thing.
