Primeval and sacred, bodies of water serve as inspiration to different cultures through history. A prominent theme in mythology, religions and folktales, water is the symbol of life, reaching into the deeper layers of the psyche.
By suspending the waterfalls from the highest point in the Atrium, a sanctuary of light, water, and sky is experienced. A visual metaphor, illustrating the passage of time, waterfalls remind us of nature's ability to soothe and transform. Inviting attention to the senses, my desire is to embrace people in a contemplative and personal experience.
Taking into consideration the needs of the patients was our first consideration. How might the waterfalls positively impact their life at the facility? Secondly, would the art be calming and restorative?
Every aspect of the installation was planned in order to complete the process in a few hours. The engineering team and I worked together in a smooth and efficient way.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
