"Sarah Schönfeld squeezed drops of various legal and illegal liquid drug mixtures onto negative film which had already been exposed. Each drop altered the coating of the film. Much like the effect of some of these substances on humans, this can be a lengthy process – sometimes one that can barely be stopped. “She then enlarged these negatives including the chemical reaction of the particular drug, to sizes of up to 160 x 200 cm. All of the substances behaved very differently: the shapes and colors that appeared showed unique characteristics and revealed unique internal universes. Schönfeld explores the possibilities of photography at the frontiers of what can be visually portrayed– the interface between representation and reality.”

Linda Alterwitz - While I am Still (2009-)

"Alterwitz’s photographic series While I am Still challenges the viewer to explore a disquieting escape of the mind amidst the physical body’s subjugation of testing inside a medical imaging machine.

In these photographs, Alterwitz weaves together images of the human body derived from medical PET scans with landscapes and with images of fabrics, revealing ethereal figures in a raw and vulnerable state. The mind, wrestling with sadness, fear, and hope, retreats to a safe refuge.  Alterwitz brings insight and awareness to the struggle and the resulting withdrawal of the inner mind.  What remains is the unearthed soul desperately searching for a place of sanctuary.”

Artist’s statement: 

"As this project is ongoing, I am seeking donations of medical images to repurpose in my artwork. Although medical testing often originates from accident or illness, I feel that the work from the series can aid the process of healing, whether by understanding what lies beneath the surface of our bodies, or having the strength to confront one’s fears."
