The constitution and workings of an Art Drug
Supply and demand: The weight of what came before bears down on the new below it; the pulverized rise to form the present. Trace elements are extracted from the psycho-geographies of world history. The elements are then distilled and combined. Their compounded substance is the drugs form. An analogy could be made with a principal in homeopathic medicine where a greatly diluted cause of a malady is distilled and introduced to the patient, their body's immune system responds by vanquishing the cause. In a favorable case, a recovery is coaxed in the patient by the impetus of the homeopathic elements - giving momentum to the bodies latent ability to heal itself. A placebo can be administered and work as a medicine. A faith that the drug will work to heal causes a coordination of the mind and body to function in ways that are not yet understood scientifically. An art drug effects a perceptual gestalt in its consumer based on a receptiveness to its perceptual effects. The art drugs efficacy is based on a faith the consumer has in the substance and their prescribed faith in the trans-formative power of art.
