The Garden

Large format C-Type Prints installed at the Oxford Cancer Centre, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, 2008
Commissioned by Oxford Radcliffe Hospital

The Garden was created specifically for the newly built Cancer Centre in Churchill Hospital, Oxford.  It is a series of four photographic views into a fictional walled garden.  Three images create life size illusory windows through the wall of the main corridor leading to the Chemotherapy Department.  The fourth image creates an illusory doorway into the garden from the Chemotherapy Waiting Room.  The Garden shown in the images is a Physic Garden (a garden of healing plants).  Early plans of the Cancer Centre indicated a courtyard garden sited in the same position where the fictional garden was finally created.
