MolecularWare pays homage to our medicated habits in the 21st century. Pharmaceuticals are prescribed for a wide variety of ailments for all aspects in our life. I look at the long-term effects on our culture, as prescribed drugs become part of our daily habits.

Consider the epigenome effect of men who take a prescribed drug for decades and then reproduce, their sperm has adapted and their DNA is now chemically altered. They will pass on their genetically changed DNA to the next generation.

I use imprinted molecular patterns from common anti-depressants that are pressed into surface of porcelain slabs as well as playing with the idea of consumable pills. These functional pieces play with the idea of our consumable culture bridging the connection between anxiety and contemporary design.
