(VIDEO) The Nature Trail – Jason Bruges Studio

The Nature Trail is a unique project for Great Ormond Street Hospital, designed to improve the experience for patients aged 1-16 on their way to the operating theatre. A large-scale distraction artwork, called The Nature Trail, which runs along the 50 metre stretch of corridor walls, has been created to help produce a calming, yet engaging, route to surgery.

Magically illuminated and animated 3D animal characters, such as hedgehogs, horses, birds, deer and frogs, appear through the foliage and forest depicted on the bespoke wallpaper, to engage and interact playfully with passers-by.

The interactive installation consists of two main elements — integrated LED panels and customised graphic wallpaper, which are embedded into the walls and cover both sides of the 50 metre stretch of corridor. The animals come to life when censors located in the ceiling sense movement below.

The Nature Trail comprises 70 LED panels, consisting of 72,000 LEDs in total, which are embedded into the wall surface at various heights in order to be accessible to varying eye levels and positions of patients travelling along the corridors. The bespoke printed wallpaper, created by Muraspec, is hospital grade, wipe clean and bacteria resistant.

A child’s natural habitat – Enzo Mari

Mantova, Italy

Designed by: Enzo Mari

A corrugated pressboard sheet is transformed by Enzo Mari into a ‘defensive’ wall to protect a place to play: ten panels of different decorations, perforations and shapes to let loose one’s imagination and to invent new stories and new characters every time. 

A light ‘fortification’ to be raised no matter where in a few seconds, to create an imagination break from everyday life. 

Yellow circles like the sun, blue waves like the sea, a wall made of red bricks…no written rules: only the creativity of the player to invent every time very new rules.
