Abstract

“Chrysalis” is an interactive lighting sculpture which pulsates as if breathing. The lighting is especially visible at night, when patients can come and use the nearby public room or wander up and down the corridor. The cocoon shape was informed by workshops with patients and staff at the RJAH in Gobowen, Shropshire. As this is an orthopaedic Hospital, most patients are there for long periods of time recovering from severe life changing injuries. The recurrent theme of ‘circle’; of family, friends, time, healing, process was visualised through the cylinder which housed an emerging chrysalis representing the profound physical and mental changes patients undergo whilst at the RJAG.
