Art concept of the Pediatric dept. in the main Hospital (before). This concept is the version of the dept. before arriving the Dr. Clown. We decided to have 2 completely version of the dept. : one before, that have this look, neglected, somehow dark and not for ill kids, and one after, so everything looks colored, bright, for kids. This one is the 'darkest' version.

Art concept abandoned pavilion (after). Once the Dr. Clown start to work in the dept. the abandoned pavilion was transformed in the Comic-Therapy pavilion. We painted the walls with skies, clouds and rainbows and created trees with foam, like a bas relief placed all along the walls. Plus we did a path thru the games, specifically built for this set.
