Our RELAX Digital programme places digital artwork in waiting and treatment areas throughout our hospitals. The moving image pieces are screened on high definition displays and are used to distract and engage patients during their hospital visit.
At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, you can currently see these works in: Labour Wards; Ron Johnson; Lower Ground Floor Outpatients and the Surgical Admissions Lounge. These works include installations by musician, artist and composer Brian Eno, Calm Films and Denis Roche.
As part of RELAX Digital, we have worked with video art collective Accademia on a number of moving image artworks throughout Chelsea and Westminster Hospital including the Kobler Day Care, Maternity Assessment Suite and Outpatient waiting areas. Accademia create moving photographs of nature by combining photography and film. Their work incorporates a gradual narrative through a slowed frame rate, and acts as a distraction and escape for patients. Watch an example of their work ‘Marrakesh’ below:
