My work titled Fluoxetine is a soft sculpture representative of the bio-active chemical and is reminiscent of the plush toy transitional objects of childhood. Fluoxetine is an anti-depressant pharmaceutical. This chemical is popularly known as Prozac, the trademarked name by manufacturer Eli Lilly and Company. It is commonly prescribed for conditions related to depression and panic disorder.
The object is intentionally rendered for personal interaction. It is human sized and designed to be attractive to the hand and eye. I want viewers to interact: touch, hold, and cuddle the sculpture.
