Datura stramonium contains the alkaloids atropine, hyoscyamine, and scopolamine. Datura intoxication can last up to two weeks, and causes erratic behavior, paranoia, and delirium, coupled with a severe sensitivity to light. Like Belladonna, Datura can make the intoxicated feel like they have changed physical form, typically into that of a prey animal due to the paranoia causing a feeling of being hunted.
‘They tell us that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, but I don’t believe that,” he said. Then, a moment later, he added: “Oh, the fear is there, all right. It comes to us in many different forms, at different times, and overwhelms us. But the most frightening thing we can do at such times is to turn our backs on it, to close our eyes. For then we take the most precious thing inside us and surrender it to something else. In my case, that something was the wave.’ - Haruki Murakami, The Seventh Man
The 'Traffic Cones’ prints were created as part of a Psychogeography project in which I explored the prevalence of signs in the urban environment. I spotted this gathering of cones on Bexhill seafront with their eye-like reflectors and illustrated the image from my own photography before applying it to a screen. The image of the three cones 'looking’ out together is quite wacky and bizarre, possibly humorous, possibly ominous. An interesting focus on something we see in our everyday environment, and something we all react to, from drivers and pedestrians being herded around them, to jokers moving their position or claiming them as their own after a night out.
