From my initial research I went to create a plate with pills, I thought about a way of confronting people with their addiction and found that this was a good way to do it. The pills and plate are made out of transparent acryl and some parts are coloured (pills). The whole set up is more beautiful than scary or aggressive, I did so on purpose, in my opinion, there is no reason to make things shocking through the fact that people will ignore them. however, beautiful things get the attention, children might play with the crystal looking pills, they are beautiful to look at and that’s the point! People will interact with them and then it is too late in both points, to ignore them and to stop.

I decided to take pictures from the plate of someone interacting them to point out my message and use the photos as a possible outcome.
