Chemical Balance: Made With Thousands Of Empty Pill Bottles




To create this work, thousands of empty prescription pill bottles were collected from nursing homes, pharmacies and individuals' medicine cabinets. Like stalactites and stalagmites, the constructions hang down from above and grow upwards from the floor below. Chemical Balance speaks to our culture's over-consumption of prescription drugs and our bodies' dependency on these medications. The piece acts like a group portrait, mapping our society's chemical intake. The illuminated structures radiate with an intense orange glow, suggesting that issues of health reach far beyond the physical.
