fluoxetine: mens sana in mundi sano

A microcosm of icons for a last generation drug, fluoxetine, whose main function is to help the neurotransmitter serotonin to restore and improve our mood.

 

The brain controls the body and its relation to the outside world and to ourselves, maintaining in a frail balance our physical and metaphysical existence.

In developed countries, the complex human environment, new relationship patterns and new social contexts, supposes an assault and even a constant aggression to our emotions.

Despite increased cranial capacity, intellectual coefficient and knowledge coupled with an overwhelming scientific and technological development, we have not made ourselves immune to an increasing emotional fragility.

I wish to express that search for optimism and happiness, even the euphoria, which longs our human condition. And relieve the mind with an aesthetic experience that is a counterpoint, a parenthesis or, why not, a visual therapy that is the art.

In my mental conception of this molecule, I wondered what would be the relation between its spatial arrangement and its main pharmacological action. I finally found it in microspaces emerging in a black night: flowers levitating, inflorescences, and even the image of a strange and ephemeral butterfly that illuminates our darkness.
