In Sickness & In Health
In sickness and in health is a ceramic tool kit to make your own medicine at home. I was inspired by the alchemical references in the Garden of Eden by Hieronymus Bosch. Alchemy, a philosophical and protoscientific tradition, aimed to create the elixir of immortality; the creation of panaceas able to cure any disease. But what is the 21st century elixir of life? ‘In sickness & in health’ triggers our mindful pharmacy through the placebo e ect. e power to heal by expectation, belief and auto suggestion. is raises a question of the borders of healing. I believe that there will be a moment where we will be too healthy, when mankind will need poison to restore the human condition of imperfection and mortality again.
