A moment of distraction

A thirty meter construction wall near the entrance of the Amphia Hospital in Breda is emblazoned with the sentence, curiosity is contagious. There are several holes in the wall through which viewers are invited to peek. Inside the holes are text and images concerning the human body and health which are meant to humor and distract visitors for a moment. After all, laugther is the best medicine.

Curiosity is contagious
