Hospital displays repurposed 'industrial junk'

March 13, 2017

Some walls of the University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital are decorated with repurposed "industrial junk,"  according to an article on the University of Kentucky news website.

Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, a fiber artist and UK faculty member, took the images that had been displayed on the construction fences and recycled them into works of art for patients to enjoy.

To give the hospital construction site  a more appealing look, digital images depicting what life would look like inside the structure were printed on vinyl and displayed on the chain link fences surrounding the site.

Sandoval selected pieces of the vinyl images based on their dimensions, colors, cropped forms and visual textures. The goal was to design the salvaged material into circular abstract designs.
