Elated Escalation Blotter Print
Archival Pigment Print on Perforated Blotter Paper, 7.5x7.5”
April 19, 1943: Swiss Chemist Albert Hofmann intentionally ingested 250µg of Lysergic acid diethylamide, expecting it to be a relatively small dose. He had no idea he'd just synthesized and ingested a substance that would serve as a key to exploring one's mind and would be a controversial and powerful substance to this day, 80 years later. He hopped on his bicycle and had what I can only assume was a very weird ride home, birthing the term "Bicycle Day" as the initial discovery of the psychoactive powers of LSD-25.
I think responsible experimentation with psychedelic substances is an incredible tool for opening one's mind and exploring what it is that makes us human, and will always advocate for safe psychedelic usage. These are just prints though, so hang them on the wall and admire them, and please don't eat them... it's just paper!
*This should probably go without saying, but this has NOT been dipped in LSD and contains no drugs, no matter how insane the schedule 1 classification of a useful substance like LSD is. This is art, is 100% legal, and contains no drugs whatsoever.
