SCRATCH
(Mansfield General Hospital)
Waiting Room

(Sold without water mark shown in picture)

Hospitals in my experience are incredibly boring places, where huge amounts of waiting are done. What has become of this cavernous space, after being left for 21 years, makes it like an abstract puzzle maze, piecing the workings together and finding new rooms and objects that would have once been unexplorable as a member of the visiting public. What would have been a very dull visit is now like an adult playground fitted with its own ping-pong tables.

With no appointments, no patients to care for and no operations to carry out, it’s the polar opposite of its former self. From a place where sanitation and order was high on the agenda to a distorted carcass full of dirt and bacteria.

The last patient checked out of the hospital in 1992.
