Tamara Staples: Side Effects May Include

San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art

Side Effects May Include addresses the struggles of mental illness sufferers with a focus on medication. Staples sorted thousands of pills, arranged them in patterns and photographed them. She then translated the photos into wallpaper, a quilt, upholstery, dresses, and drapes, to ultimately create an entire room with all surfaces covered in patterns of pills.
