Last year, an art consultant from New Haven Hosptital in Connecticut commissioned me to create a sculpture for a new Pediatric Specialites Unit, based on travel and children's literature.
They required an art-work that was bright, colourful and uplifting.
I sourced a second-hand World Atlas from the 1960's, which was printed in bright acidic colours.
I wanted to incorporate various modes of transport, and settled on a girl walking (cutting out foot-steps), a sailing ship, camels, and hot-air balloons pulled by migrating swallows.
The sculpture is displayed in a recess in the wall of the centre, framed inside an acrylic case with a maple beading around the edge.
