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.
