Pharmacophore 03

 

Pharmacophore 03 : Architectural Placebo

STOREFRONT FOR ART AND ARCHITECTURE // NEW YORK CITY // NOVEMBER 2011

Pharmacophore is the term scientists use to describe chemical drug features that interact predictably with a biological target: to kill a bacterium use an antibiotic pharmacophore; to create an antidepressant use a neurotransmitter modifying pharmacophore. But can therapeutic action be perceived without the anticipation of therapeutic effect? Pharmacophore: Architectural Placebo explores the interaction of placebo and pharmacophore. The installation at Storefront, incorporating set and costumes, evokes a hybrid medico-pharmaceutical landscape.
