About this project

Commission for Bristol Breast Care Centre waiting room at Southmead Hospital.

The Sylvan Drift is inspired by dappled light through a woodland canopy.
Made from a cobweb of light reflecting Perspex, it aims to catch flashes of colour, representing bird wing or butterfly and sun on a raindrop.
