ALBANY DAY HOSPITAL
A PUBLIC ART PROJECT
I’m excited to share some photos of a public art project recently completed for the Albany Day Hospital, which involved an image of mine being printed across five large translucent glass panels.
The client was looking for an image of nature that conveyed a sense of light and airiness, and were particularly fond of the idea of me capturing something local, native and a plant with medicinal uses.
After some research and shooting, I provided the client with 10 original images from which they chose ‘Tea Tree’. Taken on our property on Torbay Hill, we have numerous and varied tea tree plants. I often get caught up taking photos of them, especially when they glisten in the sun after rain.
The client commented: “Airy, with contrast. Looks beautiful up close (bubbles of light) and abstract from afar”.
Interestingly, tea tree oil was used regularly by the Noongar people of the south west of WA. Often prepared by soaking in water overnight or applying the crushed leaves directly, it was used as an antiseptic for skin wounds and as a treatment for sore throats, coughs, cold and fever.
A big “shout out” to Donna from Donna Cameron Designs for thinking of me for this project, and for being a total gem to work with.
If you have a project coming up and think my work may be a good fit too - I’d love to be a part of it. Please get in touch!
