New commission for new Hull NHS Hospital
Tom has completed a series of display cabinets for the pathology department to showcase a collection of historical scientific and medical instruments, such as x-ray tubes.
The cabinets have glass shelves and sliding glass doors with artwork printed and fired on them. The images relate to laboratory overalls, and 'mad science', with references to H G Wells' 'Invisible Man'. There are also a series of geometric printed panels on the interior and exterior sides of the cabinets. These shapes are to reflect perhaps the sound or frequency that would emanate from the 'strange' instruments on display.
There are two cabinets each internally lit, which are now housed along the public and staff accessed corridors of the hospital.
Site photographs to follow.
Tom has filled the cabinet with his own collection of artefacts that stem this notion of elaborate experimentation and discovery, possibly the imaginary collection to showcase a scientific eccentricity.
