Our Pipelines illustrates the process that a compound makes from the lab to a viable medical therapy. The installation is a purpose built wall divided into sections by shelves and glass wedges. These sections correspond to the three phases of clinical trials. Each contains a screen and several lit boxes. An RFID antenna is placed below each screen.
Placing one of the appropriate compound vials over this antenna displays a description of that compound. When no vial is present the phase number and description will be shown on the screen. Placing a vial from a different phase on the active area displays a return prompt.
