In 2012, Morling created a large wall mounted installation commissioned by the Royal London Hospital through Vital Arts, for the new children’s ward and the New Dance Commissions at the Royal Opera House created a piece inspired by her work. Artist Statement "My work can be described as 3 dimensional drawings. Each piece, on the surface, an inanimate object, has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open for interpretation. The works I create are pieces of narrative in my progressing story, one piece leads to the next and I work very instinctually. My work represents my inner searching, shown outwardly in domestic and uncanny scenes. I have to trust and believe that I can communicate through this medium. The works that I make are pieces of narrative which are a progressing story leading on from my last works, the journey continues. My work is the physically manifestation of my inner searching shown outwardly in domestic and uncanny scenes."
