This is an artistic response to the pandemic and the funding of the NHS. The weak, yellowing sunflowers are growing towards the Royal London Hospital, their source of sustenance. The sunflower pots each bear a letter of ‘COVID’ and the faded background is intended to represent the weight of lockdown over the city.
