In this installation, 84 blown bottles were created with pig faces on them to hold pig blood in a faux-pharmaceutical setup. Each row has a different modern "ailment" with a corresponding remedy for the issue. This installation is facetious in regards to 1800's medicinal practices, but also recognizes that not all remedies were wrong, as pig blood and pig bile are just a couple exampeles of some still used today.
