The permanent display and addition to our collection seeks to visualise the concept of breathing. The lungs are explored as a tangible motif to make visible the breathing mechanism.
The illustrated corridor uses the visual metaphor of breathing as sailing to provide a new perspective. The 6 pieces work together in a sequential way to tell a story, reflecting the surroundings in a creative and innovative way, perhaps leading to new understandings and perspectives.
4 stand-alone pieces (housed in the waiting room and adjacent consultation rooms)
6 pieces that form the illustrated corridor, a wordless narrative that responds to the concept of breathing.
