The Future Lies in your Hands - Free Medicine for All

The Future Lies in your Hands - Free Medicine for All
Photo Description:
My sculpture focuses on the lack of adequate medical treatment and availability of medicine in developing countries. The message I am trying to get across is that the governments of richer, more technologically advanced countries can devote more time and resources to the improvement of medical care in poorer countries. I titled the pill containers with diseases that are in need of curing such as HIV & Malaria. I used hot glue to hang the pills from the containers to make it look like they are spilling into the hands. I made the hands themselves from clay, rising up to catch the pills.
