Udfra metaforen “at være på vej” tager kunsten afsæt i ledemotivet Orientering efter himmelsretningerne. Kompasset viser os den store orden, jord-polernes kraft og universets perfekte geometri. Vi anvender udtrykket at “navigere i livet” for indsigten i sit eget sind og forståelsen af ens muligheder. Farvecirklen er også en perfekt helhed, hvor hver farve har sin bestemte plads. Kompasset og farvecirklen smeltes sammen i kunsten og implementerer orientering og orden for patienter og personale i bygningen.

The sports hall is centrally located between the wards and the communal activity areas. Unlike the use of solitary navigation colours on the walls and windows in the corridors and on the wards, all 16 colours of the colour circle are brought into play in the sports hall.
