In 2012 GHAT worked with The ARCHIE Foundation and University of Aberdeen to commission Susan T Grant to work with the staff in the new Dental School which was being built at the time. The project was to make the Department of Paediatric Dentistry a calming environment for the children who would be using the service. The work would also aid distraction through the use of projection and moving images, and create a fun and relaxing place for the staff, students and patients.
Susan started the project by working with local school children to build on a theme. Weather quickly became the focus of their workshops. Using old weather maps as templates Susan worked with the children to crate a series of drawings, which she would then turn into the final artwork, which included an animation that is used in the sedation room.
This project was funded by The ARCHIE Foundation
