As the nation continues to wind its way out of lockdown along the government’s roadmap, Hyundai marked this promising step forward by commissioning the world’s first ‘Tunnel of Light’ last month. With over 50 employees involved in its two-month creation, Hyundai gifted this enlightening work of art to Guy’s Hospital, London, for NHS staff and patients to enjoy, in celebration of the fact that 100,000 vaccines have now been administered.
Sheree Didham, NHS Nurse and Assistant Clinical Lead in Anaesthetics, said: “It’s been a really tough year for the NHS. We want the brightness; we want to come out of the dark.”
The tunnel sets out to do exactly that – it’s been designed as a symbol of hope and optimism, making clever use of technology to replicate the sun’s rays, in order to boost the mood of all visitors who bask in its glow. According to recent research by Hyundai Motor UK, nearly half (47%) of the 2,000 people surveyed said that they are confident we are finally over the worst of the pandemic.
This remarkable and immersive light installation was unveiled at Guy’s Hospital on 8th March and will remain open until 4th April – find out more here.
