Katharine was commissioned by Vital Arts to create a wall installation for the new Children's Hospital in Whitechapel, London.

Katharine spent six-weeks on children's wards working with patients to create sketchbooks recalling favourite memories and treasured toys. Morling then used these sketchbooks to develop porcelain sculptures for her commission for the new children's hospital. Called Collective Memories of the London 2012, the installation features performing rhinos, butterflies and train tracks made from rulers, Collective Memories of the London presents a dream-like version of the everyday world.

You can find the installation at the main entrance to Royal London Children's Hospital, ground floor.
