Hippocratic Oath, 2009
School of Medicine, Aberdeen University
A lightwork for the new School of Medicine at Aberdeen University. Bars of coloured light softly scroll up and down and across revealing fragments and lines of the text of the Hippocratic Oath. The colours and movements occur randomly.
For the first commission in 2006 Ron Haseldon invited pupils from schools in each of the Biennial Big Table neighbourhood areas to make a drawing on the subject of Animal on an A6 piece of paper. Three of these Animal drawings were transformed into large scale, freestanding line drawings in neon light to be installed in their respective neighbourhoods. The Kensington light was the exact replica of a Polar Bear drawn by a year one pupil, Maaz Binsaud, from Phoenix Primary School.
