Elixir was a digital public art project for Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The public face of Elixir was a large plasma screen in the main atrium of the hospital. This showed a programme of artists’ works, including video, animation, sound, dance and performance.

Between 2007-2009, eight artists were paired with hospital departments to produce new screen-based art works designed to challenge, entertain and engage. The results were incorporated into the programme shown on the Elixir screen. Elixir was managed by Willis Newson through Arts in Trust.
