Combining a film negative with an unconventional material is a great way to make art because not only do you get some abstract and intriguing pictures, but you also get to play around with dangerous chemicals or do something that ordinarily would be looked at as stupid or insane. Everyone’s a winner.
It can also add an otherworldly quality to an image as the fractals of nature go to work on the film negative, reacting with whatever substance the photographer or artist has thrown at it. It’s part of the destructive/creative ying-yang duality of existence! Or something like that.
