The Chandelier of Lost Earrings has brought many people together. Lauren Sagar and Sharon Campbell collected the earrings that were left behind when the other one got lost. These individual gifts come with amazing stories.
The installation is now exhibited at the lovely St Mary's hospital, a maternity ward in Manchester. It will move to Brunley in April.

Anyone who has a heart is an amazing interactive light sculpture, by Andrew Small & Steven Almond, in front of the Central Manchester Foundation Trust. (Manchester Hospital on Oxford Road)
... The work as a whole alludes to a simple, precious and fascinating human commonality: the beat of the heart.
The work uses digital lighting, medical monitoring equipment and control devices that gives the work different aspects. At rest it breaths a blue light, interacted with it becomes a heart rate monitor, on the hour it is a clock and two infrared beams set into the landscape design trigger two other moving sequences when tripped.
