Art in Hospital: Scanography

Scanography (pdf)
Interview with Daisy Richardson

Artist placement with  Art in Hospital, an organisation which delivers an ongoing visual arts programme for patients in the healthcare areas of Medicine for Older People, Rehabilitation, Palliative Care and Community and Mental Health across the NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde region of Scotland. The placement took place in Greenfield Park Care Home, The New Victoria Hospital and the Neurological Rehabilitation Unit at The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

A publication, titled ‘Scanography’, was made to document the work made by patients throughout this placement, and an interview of my thoughts on the project with Art in Hospital artist Daisy Richardson is available here.
