Palliative Care Unit – Y Bwthyn

I have been commissioned to produce work for the new Y Bwthyn NGS Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Unit in Llantrisant. Images will be printed and displayed in eight patient bedrooms using bespoke interchangeable frames, allowing patients to choose from twenty finalised photographs. Each image depicts a landscape from somewhere in South Wales to convey a sense of belonging to the local area. The work is also currently being produced as a book for both patients and their families for use in the bedrooms and day room.

Working with Willis Newson, the underlying theme has been to blur the boundaries between inside and outside. Through this the work has been greatly influenced by the memories and dreams of both staff and patients at the current Y Bwthyn Cottage Hospital in Pontypridd, mainly through meaningful conversation and workshop style settings.

The work is still in progress but it is well underway! I am looking forward to the next stages! Here is a sneak peak at a few of the final chosen images.
