The developed film has been corroded by the same chemicals humans have imposed upon the environment being photographed.

“What happens to the initial amount absorbed into the ground? Or by the plants or animals that are there at the spill site? If this is the effect they have on a piece of plastic, what is it doing to our environment?”



“German artist Sarah Schönfeld has squeezed drops of various recreational legal and illegal liquid drug mixtures onto exposed negative film for ‘ All You Can Feel’, a photography series that visually reinterprets the physiological and psychological imbalance of substances in the body. Much like the chemical effect of some of these substances on humans, the resulting shapes and colors showcase some of the unique characteristics of each drug, each revealing a vivid, and intricately particular internal universe. By enlarging the chemical reaction of each drug, ‘all you can feel’ portrays the unknown interface between representation and reality.” ©sarah schoenfeld

Effect of psychoactive drugs on spider’s ability to build a web.

In 1948, Swiss pharmacologist P. N. Witt started his research on the effect of drugs on spiders. Witt tested spiders with a range of psychoactive drugs, including amphetamine, mescaline, strychnine, LSD and caffeine. The spiders spun bizarre webs and Witt used different statistical tools and image processors to analyse them. The more toxic the chemical, the more deformed a web looks in comparison with a normal web.
