Garden art is weaved into depressing hospital spaces at St Georges, London

Sometimes the most dreary spaces can be lifted from depressedville to something that inspires.

These weaved sculptures that were clasping onto the birches were so fantastic that my visit to St.George’s hospital was not all doom and gloom. So a big thank you to the artist. There was also some interesting paintings and metal wall art on the internal walls however I was unable to get photos of that  work.

I can’t really demand that public money be diverted from the medical world to the design of public spaces so I suppose a type of garden art insertion into the existing is a good compromise. But NHS when you do decide to do some rethinking -good design does not necessarily have to cost more.

Artist is Laura Ellen Bacon.
