This commission is being led by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology). As part of FACT’s health and wellbeing programme - Healthy Spaces, with LSHP (Liverpool Sefton Health Partnership).
The aim of this commission is to provide a piece of digital based artwork for the interior waiting area of Kensington Health Centre in collaboration with children from Kensington Primary School and Kensington Children’s Centre.
The function of the waiting area is to offer users a comfortable environment to wait forappointments. Users of these waiting areas are potentially experiencing a stressful period in their lives, for example, they may be unwell or waiting for test results. We wish to commission an artwork, which supports a positive experience and provides a distraction to the users situation. It needs to be respectful of users personal space and the functionality of the space
The aims of the commission are to create a digital artwork that:
• engages patients, staff and visitors
• utilises digital technology
• is robust and has longevity
• has been developed in collaboration with the local community (Kensington Primary School and Kensington Children’s Centre).
• requires minimal and low maintenance (this is a 25 year building and there must be a costed out maintenance programme to exist alongside the artwork for 10 years, developed with the maintenance company)
There is a budget of £4000 artist fee and £8000 production for this commission.
