To take a protracted moment away from solving the nation’s political problems – or not, as the case may be – here is something completely off the wall that is as fascinating as it is batshit insane. And can be found here.
A little preface from the artist, Bryan Lewis Saunders:
“After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of the self. So I devised another experiment where everyday I took a different drug and drew myself under the influence. Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage. I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time. I only take drugs that are given to me.”
I’ve selected a few of my favorites to give you some idea of this, but you should really check out the whole thing.
Abilify/Xanax/Ativan (Unknown dosage in hospital)
One small glass of real absinthe
