Accident & Ease Department
In 2017, the Medical Centre Leeuwarden opened a new Accident and Emergency Department (A&E). During the festive event where the first pile was hit, I invited the visitors in a meditative exercise to go back to a moment in their lives where they came in contact with the A&E.
Based on the positive responses we developed the Accident & Ease Department; an autonomous outpatient clinic where symbolic human figures made of cookie dough were handed out. Passers-by could write with edible ink the history of their own body on these cookies. On the basis of the result, a recipe for Ease was developed with the desk clerk; a form to heal physical, psychological, emotional, internal or external “wounds” that are still present.
