The room marked 'Illness' which I envisaged was empty and quite literally cool and clinical. This is because 'illness' was within the patients and entered or left the room with the patients. Because I have difficulty making the paper hold the paint I decided to keep to the simplest forms: Suggested window, walls, X-ray viewing boxes and a desk.The desk became an examination table which could, in turn, have become an operating or massage table; or a bed, which is central to most patients' existence.
