By New York based artist Edie Nadelhaft, Better Living Thru Chemistry is a limited edition sculpture series consisting of candy-colored glass and mixed media capsule-shaped objects festooned with text messages, social media iconography and the language of pop psychology.
Inspired in equal parts by the presence of social media in contemporary culture and the rise of direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical marketing, Nadelhaft's work pokes fun at the alternately amusing and depressing correlations between the two phenomena as both are enlisted to over simplify the human condition and expedite contentment with a familiar recipe of instant gratification and seductive packaging.
