Images du monde visionnaire

Author : clement-delepine

Images du monde visionnaire was comissioned in 1963 by the film department of Swiss pharmaceutical company Sandoz (best known for synthesizing LSD in 1938) in order to demonstrate the hallucinogenic effects of mescaline and hashish.

Belgian poet Henri Michaux (well known mescaline user) and Eric Duvivier are aiming here to seize the way a sequence of images appears and disappears in front of a subject under the influence of psychotropic drugs.
