Featured Project : Medical Heirlooms
Tamsin van Essen has drawn the line between communication and industrial design, allowing her objects to function as well as educate. In her words:
"Exploring contemporary attitudes to disease and obsessions with perfection, Medical Heirlooms is a collection of ceramic apothecary jars that appear to have been affected by various hereditary diseases -- osteoporosis, psoriasis, acne, cancer, syphilis. As heirlooms, the jars can be passed down through the generations of a family in the same way as the medical conditions: a legacy of ill health."
