Hospital’s Wallpaper Is A Game For Sick Children
The Nature Trail at Great Ormond Street Hospital is designed to make the medical experience more child-friendly.
Jason Bruges Studio has completed ‘The Nature Trail’ at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, UK. This interactive installation is designed to distract the patients at the children’s hospital and improve their journey to the operating theatre. It features 70 integrated LED panels and bespoke graphic wallpaper on a 50m stretch of corridor.
The Guardian reports that motion sensors detect when patients pass by and triggers the panels to display various forest animals, including horses, deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, birds, and frogs. The abstracted ‘animal movements’ are recreated as interactive animated patterns of light, which reveal themselves through the trees and foliage.
