Arts Excentrix was commissioned by the Royal Adelaide Hospital for a series of 4 panels (3 in 2004 and another one in 2007) to be situated on the newly renovated Level 5. They are a combination of coloured fused glass, ceramics and resin and mounted on perspex.

The final theme was a result of an extensive survey of a large cross section of people that use the hospital; from patients, to cleaners, to visitors, doctors and others. The result of this survey was that we used the theme of water as a symbol of healing. We tried to capture the refreshing and cleansing nature of moving water through the colours we used and the translucent nature of our materials.

The Arts Excentrix artists involved were Suzi Windram, Anni Luur-Fox and Lynn Elzinga-Henry.

Translucent & opaque shades of tranquil blues & greens were contrasted with hues of terracotta to symbolise the earth of Australia. Fish and birds were entwined with the human element.
