The story of the Last Apothecary was continued in a gallery installation at Stranger Factory in Albuquerque, which opened on April 7th, 2017.
In this narrative, Theodore Lee’s daughter’s has come into possession of all her estranged father’s work, after traveling to the outer colonies for the first time in her adult life.
The installation was designed as a museum display of some of Theodore Lee’s cabinet of curiosities. One of the items I built for the installation was a fortune telling cabinet that was rebuilt around a vintage capsule machine, called Pythia’s Fortune Telling Cabinet. More information about it, and the fortunes dispensed, can be found in my build blog.
A short epistolary story about the relationship between Theodore Lee and his daughter was also scattered through the installation.
