The Apothecary

The Apothecary is a temporary social experiment in love and healing.  The aim of this work is to create a trusting and loving, albeit brief, deep connection between two anonymous people for the sake of lightening, or possibly quelling, a spiritual ailment. The hypothesis is that those who engage in this process will experience tender comforting and love.
