Saint Charles Cancer Research Center, located in Bend, Oregon.
"We've created a place of healing — high tech and high touch — where research, technology and human interaction come together in a collaborative effort of medical excellence." -St. Charles Website
Surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes, Bend, Oregon is known for its endless outdoor activities, no matter the season. For this reason, it is important that the hospital rooms at St. Charles are reflective of the mood of the town, a calming oasis of nature, fresh air and 300 days of sunshine.
It is key that the appropriate artwork is selected for medical spaces. Color, shape, composition and context are extremely important, as art has the ability to affect people's experience. For this particular space, I selected picturesque landscape photography from local photographers. Landscapes generally contain organic colors and shapes, and allow nervous patients to feel at ease during what is often a stressful time.
