Ceramic wave with printed images of wildlife situated along a wall in the corridor towards the radiation area.
This takes the form of a set of ceramic panels with different images relating to either the bluebell wood or a river and its wildlife. The wave represents the river (wards being named after rivers), the waves which make up radiation and the fact that water is important in the treatment. This artwork is sited in a number of different places, in corridors towards the radiation area and in the corridor towards the entrance to the unit.
