No! No! No!

JanYe? was her mother’s carer.
The backdrop of darkness in this image represents negativity within the hospital ward. 
The particular postures of each figure in the three windows – NO! NO! and NO!  depict obstacles to Jayne’s mother regaining mobility and self-care during her last stay in hospital.
NO – you must not walk!
NO – you must not sit!
NO – you must not wash!
Jayne mentioned that for example, her mother only needed someone’s arm for support to be able to walk to the loo - but staff did not have the time.
