About This Artwork

"Rx-140: is your everyday medical prescription and your emergency go-to. ""Rx"", Latin for ""recipe"" and/or ""to take"", customarily heading a medical prescription, calls upon you to take your remedial treatment. Designed to serve as your home-medic, RX-140 carries a QR code directing you to First-Aid advice and First-Aid training.
Inspired by the metamorphic qualities of life, the intricacy of human anatomy, and the precision of medical care, “RX-140” is designed as a medical kit designed to preserve life, prevent harm, and promote recovery. Lending its aesthetic to computer-aided design processes, mimicking the natural harmony of humankind and nature, and the process of natural evolution. The crevasse, more literally, hints at lesions and wounds on surrounding tissue. “Skin deep”, it scars the surface separates the interior of the kit into four parts, each designated for a particular type of medication. The carved-like interior compartments references the formation of new collagen fibers to mend the damage, while the white and red colors are evidently, an ode to the century-old Red Cross symbol."
