We've Come To Take You Home

This is a response to a live brief from Derby hospital, requesting we use old medical items to inspire us to create an image suitable to display in their waiting rooms. I took the brief to a visually metaphorical level, after studying the objects and realising some looked like small creatures. I wanted to show a state of delirium and being lost within the mind - calm and unreachable. However, with the right medicine and care, the mind and self can be recovered and brought back into the real world.
