Belonging to the latest group of psychoactive pharmaceuticals, Emotonil enables a brief respite from the constant stress of emotional experience. A cross between serotonin and morphine, this drug which provides a temporary “emotional death” was created with the help of an anonymous local biochemist for E.G Crichton and Margaret Morse’s exhibit Mortal Coil.
