Images: Detail of: Inside Out (2018), Boyd and Evans, 240 frame photographic work, commission for new Main Entrance.
Boyd & Evans large scale photographic work Inside Out (2017) welcomes you to the main entrance of the Hospital.
Inside Out is a photographic work; on the wall side, 240 separate frames digitally joined to make one image and on the window side a complex collage, all assembled to create a stunning woodland park for visitors to the hospital. The work is compiled of photographs taken from across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas and celebrates Milton Keynes Development Corporation’s original concept of a ‘City in a Forest’. Inside Out was commissioned by Arts for Health Milton Keynes, supported by Milton Keynes Council, for the opening of the new main entrance in 2018 and was printed and installed by Format, Milton Keynes.
The artists have been long term supporters of Arts for Heath MK and actively involved in the hospital art collection and arts programme - you can find many other paintings and photographs kindly on loan throughout the hospital.
