Andy Diaz Hope Field Crib with Ritalin Molecule Mobile (2008)

On view at the Bergarde Stable

This crib is made from the same American walnut wood as  Reflection Engine. From a velvet mattress, the baby can listen to It’s a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. The spinning molecule is Methylfenidaat (Ritalin), that will help the baby to calm down. However, does is really help, or not?

Artist Andy Diaz Hope questions the pharmaceutical industry and the use of Ritalin among young children.
