Chamber Coda by Jessica Mehta

Chamber Coda was created exclusively with the pills found in the artist’s mother’s room after a final (successful) overdose. The nation is in the midst of an opioid epidemic, but marginalized populations are at dramatically higher risks.

Materials: Hydrocodone, Trazodone, Baclofen, Gabapentin
