cameras built out of a pill packs, pinhole photography, silver gelatin contact prints, leaflet, 2002-2005
Tomasz Dobiszewski in his work Re-medium creates a camera out of a pill pack. The space in which the image appears is where the pill lay just a moment ago. The image might be then a vision after the pill has been taken, or this vision might be the consequence of taking the image. The author, for whom, pinhole photography has always been an uncovering medium, is trying to convince us, by putting instructions next to the photographs of how to use them in the shape of an informative brochure added to the medicine, that during the times of “visual pauperisation” the images will still appear, even if only as placebo.
