Gelatin Pill Mosaics Critique Pharmaceutical Drug Culture

Artist Andy Diaz Hope uses UV treatments on gelatin pill capsules to create his astounding pill mosaics. The diligent industrial designer begins the meticulous process by first digitally photographing locations and people and then inserting the imprints into the pills, piece by piece. Andy was kind enough to give us exclusive insight into his process: “The images are photographs that I print multiple times and then cut into a grid of squares which I roll and put into the capsules and press closed. The pills are then placed to recreate the image in a grid of capsules. The UV coatings are clear and used to preserve and protect the gelatin of the capsules.”
