Watch a Variety of Common Pills Explode and Dissolve in Ben Ouaniche's Macro Time-Lapse Video

Have you ever wondered what a pill looks like as it dissolves in your stomach? Although this video by filmmaker Ben Ouaniche for Macro Room doesn’t create the exact same conditions as your gut, the time-lapse video does show the spectacular ways pills quickly disintegrate in water as they bubble, ooze, expand, and disappear. If this video sparked an interest in learning how other substances dissolve in water, can see a larger variety of Ouaniche’s macro video experiments (such as acrylic paint, ink, and ice cream) on Vimeo.

Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)
