Dark Passage
Developed in the Ancient Near East, alchemy is the ambitious scientific pursuit of the transformation of base metals into gold through contact with the mythic elemental ore, The Philosopher's Stone.  During the Middle Ages, alchemists also attempted to apply theories of transformation toward the development of cures for bodily ailments.  Based off many of the humoral writings of Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.E.), this pursuit gave birth to modern chemistry and medicine, but also exemplifies the improbably longing for solutions to the unknown.  Produced in the liver, black bile was historically attributed towards the cause of melancholy, an ailment that is similar to depression and anxiety.  Much like a labyrinth, the experience of become an adult is dizzying and confusing.  The anxieties that arise when attempting to maintain order in a chaotic world can manifest physically in the body.  Symptoms including dry nausea, swelling, stomach pain, disruption of digestion, delirium, and depression were thought to be the result of too much black bile in the system, an imbalance that could also cause inspiration and creativity.  The dual nature of melancholy creates a state in which artistic and philosophic thinking could thrive.

The theme of finding order in chaos resounds in the work of Ben Altman's The More That Is Taken Away and Sarah Sutton's Dissolve.  Both artists bridge the gap between earthly elements and the spirit, emotional instability and surefootedness, as well as two-dimension and three-dimensional perpspective.
