Flygfänas skog. Illustration möter rumslighet på barn och ungdomssjukhuset i Lund
Flygfänas skog is a project where illustration meets spatiality. The work is about how section 62 of the Children and Youth Hospital (BUS), at Skåne University Hospital, in Lund can use illustration as a compliment to their premises. Today, the hospital has difficulties to deal with the older children patients at the hospital in a good way because the expression that is there today, mostly only appeals to the younger patients. Previously, there has been some kind of decoration on the department and the staff thought that this is boring, is a problem in that in many places there are stickers of child characters posted on the walls. This and other installations that cut out letters, face off, and symbols have made sense in the department becomes fragmented, ill and childish. Many of the elderly patients are therefore not equal to-diction to the Department. Because the department has many seriously ill patients who are hospitalized for an extended period would therefore find a design that feels relevant to every age group. The department has already teamed up with furniture studio Swedish Ninja who has developed furniture for the department's dining room and entrance. My project has been about being able to contribute to the change in section 62 by way of illustration to the entrance. After discussions with the project manager Ann Elmqvist Frihd the theme for the illustrations became nature with the goal of finding an expression that can appeal to even the older kids.
