Public art – Launceston General Hospital Emergency Department

A 3.8m high bouquet of daisies

About

The garland of flowers at the entrance of the Launceston General Hospital’s Emergency Department is a colourful and hopeful sculpture created by Wil Goodsir.

The flowers are inspired by Tasmania’s alpine Everlasting Daisy, and offer visitors a metaphor of perseverance and beauty in what can be a sometimes traumatic environment. The daisies dance in the wind and light up at night

These 3.8m high works are made from staineless steel, plexiglass and anodised aluminium.
