Sarah Schönfeld - All You Can Feel

"Since the 1950s, we in the western world have increasingly come to understand our most intimate desires and experiences as the products of a so-called ‘chemical self’. We can explain moods, angers and diseases both physiological and psychological as an imbalance of substances in the body.

All of this, of course, takes place against the backdrop of a constantly shifting legal and political climate regarding the regulation of different types of mood-altering substances.

What do all these substances actually look like when their essence is visually depicted?

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 200cm.”

Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.

"The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"

After Paul Stankard battled with undiagnosed dyslexia in his youth, he struggled to find his life’s calling. 

It wasn’t until college that he discovered scientific glass blowing, which is the manual process of creating scientific instruments out of glass.

For 10 years Stankard worked on making industrial glass, but it was while experimenting with glass in his garage that he finally found his passion in life: paperweights.

Since finding his calling, Stankard has become a pioneer in the studio glass movement.

His paperweights celebrate the primal beauty of nature on a more intimate level.

Stankard says each piece integrates mysticism with botanical realism, giving the glass “organic credibility.”

And today, his work can be found in more than 60 museums worldwide, including the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and even the Louvre.

Murals Mistaken as Reality

Several of artist John Pugh’s murals have proven to be a little too realistic:

First Mural: In 1980 Pugh received a commission from his alma mater, California State University, Chico, to paint a mural on the side of Taylor Hall. Shortly after its completion, a woman who worked across the street called the administration to ask when the wall would be repaired.

Second Mural: With his mural Art Imitating Life Imitating Art Imitating Life at San Jose’s Cafe Espresso, Pugh created a convincing extension of the restaurant’s interior. Everything within the brick proscenium — the alcove, sculpture, painting, stairway, cat, and woman — was painted by hand.

After the mural was completed in February 1997, a male patron tried to introduce himself to the woman and complained to a manager that she was giving him the “silent treatment.”
