This piece concerns the struggle caused by prescription drugs. While they are meant to solve or at least help a problem the results are often addiction and side effects, creating more medical issues than they solve. The extended use of prescription drugs becomes a downward spiral, requiring the user to add more drugs to the list in order to "fix" the problems caused by the initial drugs. Over time the user needs stronger drugs in higher doses for each growing issue; more ailments are acquired and in turn more money is spent. For some, the cost of a year's worth of medications are equivalent to if not more than the cost of an actual crystal chandelier.

This piece now hangs in The Collective, a restaurant located in NYC's meat packing district, 1 Little W. 12th St.
