"This is one of oldest pieces in this set, from around 2008. I was starting to dive into the deep symbolism of fairy tales and this was inspired by Snow White. The symbolism of the
apple as temptation, and as part of a greater fall. These pieces were chosen for
Bicycle Day because they all represent an exploration of my inner
worlds: the imagination, the subconscious, as well as our collective
symbolism. For me, using psychedelics also takes me to these worlds, and
these worlds are our collective symbolism, there is a universal quality
to the stories and images that resonate with us.
I think the absolute best
advice about psychedelics is to have respect and intention when you
do them, and perhaps have a guide. They aren’t a “party” drug. I mean I
don’t think of them that way. They are a teacher, but you have to be a
good student. Setting is important, the people around you are important,
and your intention going in is important. Having done them accidentally
the first time, and really against my will the second time, I can
assure you that you don’t want to be flying blind!
would also say do some reading, do some research! Have some knowledge
beforehand of what you are even searching for. If you don’t know, that’s
ok! But they are powerful teachers so you have to be respectful of
that. Personally, I like to be in nature and not around a lot of people,
but that’s how I roll anyway. I like to communicate with the plants and
it’s hard to hear them if there’s a lot of people noise around." - Camille Rose Garcia
