Littlemore Mental Health Centre – Detailed Design

Thursday 4th May 2017 – 

Draft Artwork: Littlemore Mental Health Centre. Artist: Christopher Tipping

Draft artwork awaiting approval to go into production – we are working with our client team to review / comment and approve in the next few days so we can meet our install schedule.

At this stage I set all the imagery against a black background – which actually indicates glazing with no printing – just clear glass.

This work will be digitally printed onto optically clear vinyl. The process allows for a layer of colour, followed by a layer of white and finally another layer of colour. The artwork can be read equally from both viewing sides – inside or outside the building. The production level artwork files, sampling and final digital printing and installation is done by my long-time collaborators, Vinyl Graphics Ltd.

Various degrees of opacity and transparency are designed into the artwork. As a rule this is worked out via single colour files – in this case magenta – which clearly indicate degrees of opacity.

Jack Harrison VC – Harrison Park, Hull

Wednesday 3rd May 2017 

This new development of 64 Extra Care Apartments at Orchard Park, recently delivered in April this year by The Riverside Group is called ‘Harrison Park’, 100 years after Jack Harrison VC  a former Hull FC Rugby League Star was killed at Oppy Wood,  Arras, France in 1917 during the First World War.

Today – the 3rd May 2017 marks the day all four Hull Pals Battalions took part on the attack on Oppy Wood.

This event & others relating to WW1 are remembered on the 14-18-NOW WW! CENTENARY ART COMMISSIONS website.

A Pinterest Board of research images about Orchard Park and its history, can be found here. 

Hull is currently celebrating City of Culture 2017 statusso there is much to do and see there ! –

Littlemore Mental Health Centre, Oxford

Project Update – 20th April 2017 

Mental Health Services at Littlemore Mental Health Centre, are directed and managed by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust .

This arts in health project was commissioned for Wenric Ward , which provides Low Secure Adult Services  – by Tom Cox of Artscape and the Staff of Wenric Ward.

Information about the history of the earlier Littlemore Hospital in Oxford can be accessed via this link to the Oxfordshire Health Archives  and to the accompanying site about County Asylums 

Tom worked alongside Occupational Therapists Helen Keay (Senior OT) and Holly Williams, in collaborating with patients, to undertake a series of workshops centred around drawing and mark making. I was subsequently provided with access to these drawings as inspiration for the artwork, using where possible, drawing motifs, textures and colours which formed part of the outcome from the creative sessions.

The project site is created within the internal circulation space of the Ward, centred around a small external courtyard. Artwork will be digitally printed onto optically clear vinyl and applied to the glazing, which provides views into the courtyard. The artwork has been commissioned to be applied on three sides of the courtyard glazing taking in the Circulation Corridor, Lounge and Multi-Faith Room, animating the space, introducing colour and detail and to visually engage patients and staff.

Harrison Park, Hall Road, Hull – Part 3

Friday 10th March 2017 – Final installation of the glazing vinyls at Harrison Park, Hull.

VGL have done an amazing job – as ever – collaborating with me through detailed design / design for production / sampling / revisions / and final installation. A big thanks to them !

I have also been supported throughout the project by Andrew Knight of RKL Consultants who developed and delivered the Arts Strategy for all three Extra Care Facilities being built in Hull.

Harrison Park, Hull – Artwork Development

Each element used in the design starts as an ink sketch or line drawing. These are often drawn over-sized and larger than they will appear in the artwork to scale. The individual images are then scanned and saved as high res. jpegs allowing me to import into Photoshop.

In the above draft artwork the optically clear vinyl, with no print colour is shown as black. This would appear as fully transparent glazing. The artwork presents various colour & opacity values, utilising print white techniques to great effect. VGL have been excellent and creative collaborators on this project.

Below is a draft production file from VGL which shows – in tones of pink – the strength of opaque and translucent white which is printed in-between the colour layers.

The trick with all these proposals is to get the right proportion of printed cover, clear glazing and translucency. All very well on paper – but once installed, there are views beyond the glazing to consider too. The movement of traffic, activity of people and the ever changing weather. These all impact considerably on how the installed artwork can be read and appreciated, both from at distance and from up close.

Full scale printed samples are the next item on the list.

 

 

Harrison Park, Hall Road, Hull – Part 1

Harrison Park, Hall Road, Hull

An Extra Care Facility by Riverside

Click on this link HARRISON PARK, HALL ROAD CREATIVE CONTEXTUAL DOCUMENT to view the research based contextual concept draft for the project – 

The Glazing Vinyl Artworks are presented as a series of abstract & figurative elements based upon a number of historic land maps, including the 1816 plan of Cottingham Common showing historic field patterns, each of which is annotated with the names of the individual landowner and /or tenant farmer.

The Inclosure Act of 1766 transformed this ill-drained common meadow and pasture, which was subject to seasonal flooding from the tidal River Hull, into a landscape of sluices, dykes, drains and ditches, the names of which, will be familiar to many of you now.

The 1886 hand drawn map of Coldharbour Farm, on North Carr Lane -now Orchard Park Road, in the collection of the Hull History Centre, shows the individual fields held by the tenant farmer, which were farmed until the new estate was built in 1963. This new building on Hall Road, part of the Orchard Park Estate, sits within the original boundary of the farm.

Concept development drawing for Harrison Park, Extra Care Facility, Hull. Image: Field Patterns & Textures. Artist: Christopher Tipping

It is this historic landscape and community which provides a ‘frame’ of support and a visual reference for the artworks, reflecting the fact that there has been a continuous system of land & water management and farming, in turn supporting a community on this site since medieval times.

The artwork builds a bridge to the past and also acts as a threshold between the external and internal landscapes of the building. The outlines of plants, suggest those which may have grown in the waterways and fields of the area – Flowering Rush, Floating Pondweed,

Dyers Greenweed, Birds Foot Trefoil, Marsh Marigold, Cowslip, Common Daisy and Stinking Cranesbill. The Field Pattern geometry works as a scaffold device to hold these detailed drawings together, with its suggestion of green fields, ponds, clouds and textures.

The whole artwork is kept rigidly in place via the deep architectural window frames, which impose a vertical and horizontal symmetry to the view.

Concept development drawing for Harrison Park, Extra Care Facility, Hull. Image: Field Patterns & Textures. Artist: Christopher Tipping

The use of areas of clear, transparent glazing is very much a part of the intention of the work, allowing views both from and into the building, whilst further animating and providing a backdrop of external colour and texture to illuminate and make visible, the cut-out detailing of the artwork.

The Field Pattern is further used to inspire and give form to a wall-hung cabinet, to be known as the Field Cabinet, which can be used as an ordinary bookshelf as well as a cabinet of curiosity containing references to the history and locality of the new building.

Tameside Hospital New Macmillan Unit – Part 2

The Chemotherapy Treatment Room. During my last visit to site on 13th March 2017 – I was really interested to see how the creative concept for the project had been applied in the Chemotherapy Treatment Room – a state of the art, 6 chair Chemotherapy Suite.

The artwork was to be applied to the adjustable privacy screens adjacent to each chair. The work forms a continuous landscape, divided into 6 sections, which will be continually re-arranged to present new combinations as the screens are used throughout the day.

These screens were manufactured and installed by Kwickscreen. 

The Christie Hospital has also launched a 3 day a week chemotherapy service at the new £1.8m Macmillan Unit.

Main Corridor Artwork … nearly there !

17th January 2017

New Macmillan Unit for Tameside& Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

I know that this has been a rather long session of recent postings – but I am in ‘catch-up’ mode and before the new unit opens I wanted to get as much of the project documented, so bear with me if you can !

By far the most visible of the installations being delivered is the large scale bespoke ‘landscape’ running the length of the new corridor space. This artwork is not a linear narrative, so can be experienced from whatever direction you are walking in. It isn’t a conventional landscape either, with a foreground, horizon and expansive sky. It may have elements of this about it – BUT, the original walk I made with Stewart Ramsden into the Landscape of Tameside was only the beginning of a creative process and the development of a descriptive iconography which could help to tell a story about a journey.

The artwork was developed, manufactured and installed by VGL Ltd. The work is printed onto Dreamscape Suede Wallcovering which has a Poly Cotton fabric backing.

The design work was extensively sampled, with sample installations being carried out at the Hospital –  as you can see from the following images. Where necessary the design was then tweaked to fit following comments before finally being approved for full printing and manufacture.

Glazed Partition Screens …

The artwork proposals extend to and include a series of glazed partition screens situated along one side of the main corridor, opposite the large-scale bespoke wallcovering, which itself acts as a grand backdrop to the new unit. The screens however, can be viewed from both sides, extending the reach of the artwork, which becomes something of a ‘theatre in the round’, presenting multiple viewing points and visual ‘conversations’ & interplay, not only with the artwork, but with the wider architectural scheme and interiors. The brief called for these screens to have the artwork encapsulated as a printed laminate between layers of safety glass. I collaborated with both VGL and The Printed Film Company on this element of the work.

The Printed Film Company described their brief as:

“We were asked to supply decorative laminated safety glass partitions in the main corridor; 6mm + 6mm low iron toughened glass, PVB laminated encapsulating our optically clear PET interlayer, on which we digitally printed the required designs to give pleasing environmental visuals along with manifestation. We procured the glass, printed the interlayer’s and managed the lamination process before delivering the laminated panels to site for installation”.

There are some lovely images of the work on their website –

The glazing panels were fitted into timber frames by the Macmillan Project main contractors, John Turner Construction Group

This colour image forms part of the production design detailing and indicates – via darker and lighter magenta tones, the opacity and translucency of a white interlayer, which has colour printed on both sides. The darker the tone, the more opaque the colour.

The image above, illustrates the same process described earlier whereby the print-white layer creates the opacity and transparency of the final colour artwork – in this instance the degrees of print-white are indicated in shades of blue.

A wide range of samples were produced to achieve the right balance of translucent and opaque colour.

Designs for production…

Monday 16th January 2017

We decided to keep the development and manufacture of the detailed site-specific artwork for the unit under wraps to allow for further consultation, production development and sampling etc. Since the last post 8 months ago now, things have really moved on!

Following design approvals and sign-off at the end of April 2016, we embarked on the detailed design work for production with VGL and other specialist contractors and suppliers.

We are collaborating with VGL on a broad range of digital designs, including a large scale polychrome bespoke Wallcovering to the Main Corridor and print-white Glazing Vinyls to the external glazing frames. VGL are further assisting us in the supply of digital production files for:

Laminated Glazed Screens being manufactured by The Printed Film Co 

Retractable Privacy Screens for the Chemotherapy Treatment Room, being manufactured and supplied by Kwickscreen.

The following images show some of this process, including building works, sampling and sample site-installations, testing the ideas. Many thanks to Architects IBI Group  and Main Contractors John Turner

Michael Hughes of IBI Group – our Project Architect, has however designed a brilliant new canopy entrance feature – not sure I can show that one just yet ! – but will get an image asap !

A large vocabulary of individual landscape inspired elements were developed for the project, using documentary photographs taken on my walk with Stewart & further drawings and studies made in the studio.

Colour iconography / elements developed for the new Tameside Macmillan Unit by Christopher Tipping. Image: Christopher Tipping

As per usual in my practice, some of this iconography is part of a common language of ideas which appear throughout my work – some are original to this project, some may find their way into the next project. Some have migrated from a previous project. This is my original ‘handwriting’, and may offer clues to the driving elements which fuel my approach to any work.
