Artist Sarah Schoenfeld turns the tables on drugs.
According to BoredPanda:
Her project explores the chemical reactions that happen when film negatives are exposed to various mixtures of legal and illegal drugs. In other words, it shows how the effect of the drugs might looks like.
Schoenfeld used drugs like cocaine, heroin, ketamin, LSD, and a variety of popular club drugs. Every substance behaved in a different way and allowed the photographer to produce a range of exciting images – from the dauntingly dark sphere of adrenaline to an MDMA blob bursting with colors.
The stimulus for this project came from two different experiences: one is that Sarah used to work in a Berlin nightclub where the issue of drugs was very present. The second is her family – her father was on medication because of a mental illness. As she states, she was interested in the influence that drugs have on the self, the personality and the psyche.
My mind is blown…

Regardless of your stance on narcotics and their regulation, it’s hard to argue with the idea that the brain makes a formidable canvass for certain chemistry. It’s beautiful, knowing that canvasses of all kinds abound and that they would have their own interpretation of what we might dare explore – should we approach with caution, and curiosity, in our exploration.
And on a separate note, looking at the image of crystal meth, I’m sure we can all agree that Walter White was definitely ahead of his time.
