In my research I came across Anna Milson and her textiles honours project https://exposure2018.massey.ac.nz/students/textiles/anna-milson/https://annaemilson.wixsite.com/designportfolio/selected-work-1
“THE JOY PROJECT was created to alleviate the negative experiences of hospitalisation, through an infusion of colour and pattern. Comprised of magnetic wall patterns and surface prints, this collection focuses on providing variety; the magnetic patterns vary in complexity, enabling opportunities of individual creative expression by all ages of child patients (0-17 years of age). Maintaining the bold, bright aesthetic of the collection, whilst still incorporating the use of hospital-friendly materials, offers a wide breadth of application within the hospital environment, but also beyond.” (Milson)
It was interesting to see the parallels between Anna’s project and my own so I decided to reach out to her to see if she had any advice for me. Will be interesting to keep in contact with her through 454 to talk about opportunities and limitations she experienced in her project.
