Medical Packages by Bini Atkinson


I work with patient’s medication tablet packages and blister packs . I rework, manipulate and alter the packages and add stitched text.


I have been working remotely with individuals who have been shielding /isolating for long terms conditions during the Covid 19 Lockdowns. After a” Call Out” on Instagram, people sent me their medical packages and any words they would like to share. I stitched these words on to the participants medical card packages and pill blister packs. The Participants remain anonymous and I do not Google their conditions. I always seek the participant’s permission before posting on Instagram. At present I have 13 participants, all have found the process cathartic and have enquired if the work can be exhibited . I aim to find some sponsorship and a venue to display the work. This work is on going and very much a work in progress.
