In her artistic work, Beverly Fishman explores our relationship with technology. Pill Spill, her most recent project, explores our relationship to drugs, and our vulnerability in that relationship. This work is made of 90 glass capsules whose psychedelic patterns are inspired by the drugs made to alter our moods. This piece points out that medicine can be both a cure and poison. This ties into Fishman’s view of human nature. Humans think that we’re the inventors, but in this case the technology changes us, not the other way around. Fishman’s work poses the big question: whose in control?
