Patients with eating disorders and their families often describe their ordeal as a "living nightmare". This became the inspiration for this year's art installation at Singapore General Hospital (SGH). Titled Forest Of Dreams, it is held in conjunction with Eating Disorders Awareness Week, which started on Sunday and ends today. The art installation will be on till March 31. The dreamcatchers in the installation were handcrafted by patients of SGH's Eating Disorders Programme to signify their desire to move towards recovery and to fulfil their personal hopes and dreams.
