A combination of ink, water, marbling oils, tonic water and digital post production were used to create this series. ‘Grown’ inside petri dishes, I made several lifts from each dish to create a print. After some minor retouching and hue alterations I was left with these! Part microbial, part cosmic - these artworks were re-printed at high resolution and exhibited inside petri dishes on heavy gauge gloss card. I wanted to create something a little less predictable to hand out at an exhibition, but something that would act as a signifier of my interest within scientific experimentation.

Having people on Reddit tell me how their experiences with psychedelic drugs “enhanced their vision” and “increased their perception of reality” because they saw plants breathing, or the embodiment of god… while fucked off their face on LSD or some shit.
Yep. Sure thing dude. Hallucinations are actually you “seeing beyond what is normally visible” or whatever. It’s totally not akin to a mirage or dream. Nope. That cockroach with a hat you saw was actually there. It was totally Santa who jacked you off - certainly not your pervy neighbour taking advantage of your “enlightened” self. Definitely. God is real. Science is wrong. You’re a genius now.
