DOI: 10.1386/vcr.7.2.155_1


This visual essay introduces and describes an IOS app that is currently in development. The app is based on an ongoing project Pillflowers (2004–present), an aesthetic response to the prevalent use of pharmaceuticals in North American society. Pills and tablets make up the petals of flowers that create 200 mandala-like designs. The essay details the five functions of the app that are either created or in process – grow, gather, play, dream and gift. An analysis and associated images for each function round out the text.
