Bubble Dreams is an interactive installation on display for three years in the children's services waiting area at Tessa Jowell Health Centre in South London.


Designed to engage children and families in multiple ways, the installation offers opportunities for choice and control that can sometimes feel out of reach within healthcare settings.  Through interactive technology and instructional language, the installation immerses visitors in a range of calming and playful ‘bubble dreams,' transporting them to other worlds.  


Commissioned by Dulwich Picture Gallery for Tessa Jowell Health Centre, Bubble Dreams is the second in a series of four chosen commissions dedicated to embedding art in healthcare.
