TWO SCULPTURES FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA
‘Bringing in the Everyday’ is the title of two interactive, customisable sculptures – made by Art in Site in collaboration with artist Maryrose Sinn, and installed at Lambourn Grove, Elderly Healthcare Unit. Both sculptures were designed for a user group that includes people with complex dementia cases, some of whom who have lost the ability to comprehend and use language.
‘Shelf Work’ is an interactive mantel shelf, designed to accommodate everyday objects and photographs that can be swapped, handled, and rearranged by anyone visiting the unit. It provides a safe and controlled means to personalise the environment.
‘Floating Discs’ is a kinetic arrangement of hoops featuring images of local places and points of interest. The images are useful as prompts and memory-triggers for conversation with patients.
