“Turn off your mind, relax, float downstream” Timothy Leary
Fake trips, under the fake brand 5-HT, otherwise known as serotonin to achieve a psychedelic experience or dissolution of one’s ego. A sense of merging with nature or the universe. The words of Timothy Leary are re-contextualised, from a drug induced mystical trip to a walk in nature, or a more humdrum setting quarantined at home, and staring at the walls.
This audio visual kinetic artwork engages eyes, ears and hopefully something more. A high frequency soundscape loops infinitely with the hypnotic revolving sculpture made from 12 curves adorned with metallic disks.
Through the instagram camera filter, an otherwise everyday moment is transformed into the numinous, where magic and mystical unfold.
The first in a series of 3 AR artworks for our post-truth pandemic world. Believing is seeing. Created for CADAF Digital Art Month Miami December 2020 as an Augmented Reality experience.
