“The Pill” Barn Windows

This series of images shows a site-specific piece I created this fall at Djerassi Resident Artists Program.  Rusty wire fencing covered six windows in the Old Barn, so I proposed a project of making wire illustrations to replace it.

Carl Djerassi, founder of the program, was one of the developers of oral contraceptive, “the pill.”  Each wire drawing depicts a different style of birth control pill package.

    Any making out in this barn shouldn’t result in a pregnancy.

  2. Wow. Hadn’t seen this’ til now – love it. I like the spider webby feel with modern message. Not sure if it’s a message exactly…. Modern(ish) medicine?
