Sculptures Built From Pills by Noumeda Carbone

by Danny OldaPosted on

Italian artist Noumeda Carbone works in fields as diverse as fashion, street art, illustration and painting.  Her sculptures retain a certain colorful vividness that characterizes much of her work.  However, their material is quite interesting: pills (or more accurately empty pill capsules.)  Carbone assembles the pill capsules into undulating three dimensional shapes.  While the shapes are vaguely organic, reminiscent of cellular or molecular structures, the colors emphasize their synthetic nature.  These sculptures along with her Wearable Pills series playfully blur the line between fashion, art and biology.
