||A 45' long panoramic
photo mural of sandcastles on a beach wraps around the walls
of the Heart Center waiting room at Schneider Children's Hospital.
The mural is a composite of dozens of elements, built, found,
and photographed during the summer of 2004 at Green Hill, Fire
Island. The castles are fantasies, drawn from a wide variety
of architectural styles. An associated software program housed
in a kiosk shows photos of other castle experiments along with
historical images related to the structures. Our hope is that
waiting children and their families will be temporarily transported
to a world of beauty, mystery and serenity on a warm summer day.
