"For over a decade, the body of artwork called Pharmacopeia has engaged viewers in the debate around our relationship with medical treatments, encouraging us to examine our own medical and pharmacological history. It continues to explore the tension between the dependence of our society on pharmaceuticals and the ambivalence we feel towards them."
I wanted to share their artwork with you. It struck a cord in me as I'm sure it will resonate with you also.
Looking at the fistfulls of pills I take daily I too could easily make a CFS veil or pain med shoes. For better descriptions of the art work and the various artists please go to their web site, Pharmacopeia. There is also much more art, wearable and not, on their site. Very inspiring and disturbing at the same time. In its own way it is a sort of activism. A way of making our invisible illness visible.
