“I drew two rollators from Medical Museions collection. Initially I found the objects to be boring and ugly. Then, as I spent more time looking and drawing, I began to appreciate their aesthetic qualities. Over time, I began to see rollators as essential, beautiful objects. They became elevated from mere boring, utilitarian things to be experienced as unique, beautiful and fascinating encounters and to help re-see aspects of ageing in a much wider and more positive way. One rollator I drew was the same model that Ingrid, the Queen mother, had famously used. Her appearance at a Royal function, wearing a dress that matched the colour of her rollator, helped popularising rollators. Its cultural and historical significance and the fascinating story behind the object were embedded in the drawing.”
