These Illuminated Medicine Capsule Containers made by artist Jean Shin are interesting art pieces that doubles as both a lit chandelier and gorgeous artwork.

Jean Shin created these intricate works by using thousands of empty prescription pill bottles collected from nursing homes, pharmacies and people's cabinets. When hung upside down, these Illuminated Medicine Capsule Containers act as an elegant lighting fixture.

Implications - The Illuminated Medicine Capsule Containers were created as a sign to express society's "over-consumption of prescription drugs and our bodies’ dependency on these medications." The artistic chandelier is represented as a type of map that shows much many pills society is ingesting. Looking at it from a distance, you would probably never guess what the glorious lighting fixture is made of.
