Canberra Hospital Mosaics Part 2

This mosaic was created by David Hodges as part of the new Woden Valley Hospital (now Canberra Hospital) artworks program back in 1993.

Named ‘Tile Topology’, it is made out of vitrified ceramic and glass gems and covers an area of pavement and part of a low wall next to a fountain. It maps out the Canberra region with the, then new, hospital in the centre. Participants included people from the Karralika Therapeutic Community.

It’s really quite unassumingly beautiful and thankfully not falling apart! I love the use of the vitrified ceramic – the colours seem to blend together so well and is probably why it looks so subtle and natural.
