Distillations #91 – Marvels and Ciphers

We created this show to highlight a temporary exhibit at CHF’s museum all about the crazy and sometimes creepy achievements of alchemists and chemists through the ages. Segments on Viagra, an alchemical drawing come to life, and a 19th-century political cartoon. (It’s actually way more interesting than it sounds!)
