Medical Witchery

Medical Witchery

A Chinese parasol exploring health conditions, and treatments tailored to the needs and wants of the individual and their medical condition. The parasol embodies Western and Eastern Medicine. A forged steel unicorn horn placed on top, representing people with disABILITIES as unique. A crystal ball at the bottom of the parasol, exploring the historical aspect of medicine women being perceived as witches. A diagnosis is made by a physician, but no comfort, support, or information is shared about how their new identity and life will change.
