Pharmaceutical dreams, 2010

As part of the seminal work A short story about memory, Pentothal and dreams a small serie of framed C-prints and three lightboxes with slides is produced titled ‘Pharmaceutical dreams’. The slides and photographs are imagery taken from postcards that the Pentothal manufacturer would send to his clients. These seemingly innocent photographs of touristic spots were used as advertisment for the Pentothal drug. Details and fragments of information in the audiowork, but also in the fragmented photographs, allow the visitor to experience a collective mnemonic scenario.
