ABOUT THIS ART:
"Two of these blotter designs were created specifically for this project.They are both variations of pieces that I have been creating over the last year for a body of work revolving around the thematic similarities between Ted Geisel’s (Dr. Seuss) storybook, THE LORAX, and Ted Kaczynski’s (Unabomber) manifesto, “Industrial Society And It’s Future.”

Obscure rumors of the CIA’s clandestine operations using LSD in experiments involving mind-control on unwitting US citizens and US military personnel in their top secret MK-ULTRA program was something that circulated mostly in darkness, woven throughout nefarious conspiracy theories. Now, those rumors have been confirmed with the release of previously classified information through the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) and the many books that have since been published on the findings of that information, which revealed detailed accounts of the dark and torturous applications of LSD by the CIA.

The first time I took LSD, I was alone, at home, and holed up in my bedroom so my parents wouldn’t know that I was tripping my brains out. I only ventured out of my bedroom once to go to the bathroom, and I got stuck for what seemed like an eternity, staring at myself in the mirror, ignoring the advice that I was given about not looking at yourself in the mirror while tripping on acid.

Aside from the warning about avoiding mirrors, the most helpful bit of wisdom that I was given before I took LSD was to “set the table you want to sit at.” That basically means that you prepare by getting into a positive headspace and situating yourself in a familiar, friendly, and comfortable environment where you can safely spend 10 hours crawling out of your face.

My advice (shaking a clenched fist...) Open your 3rd eye or I will open it for you!" - Pat Riot

ABOUT Pat Riot:
“Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.”


What could be more playful and open to interpretation than The USA PATRIOT Act? The expanded ten-letter abbreviation (USA PATRIOT) stands for: "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism”. The name is a reaction to an over-reaction.
