This self-directed poster series explores a vivid and complex visual language that counters the most fearful drug war era propaganda, and instead celebrates recent groundbreaking research utilizing psychedelics to treat things like PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression. My work seeks to create curiosity, and poinst to a common recorded experience of those undergoing treatment, the overview effect.
The overview effect is something first described by astronauts looking at the earth and feeling a sense of unity and connectedness upon realizing that we all are on this rock spinning through space. But it can also be experienced through meditation, or carefully monitored psychedelic sessions with trained psychologists and psychiatrists.
