Best Psychedelic videos to watch while tripping

The psychedelic experience can be a magical one with the right environment.However, an unsettling environment can be equally detrimental. Make sure that when you take your psychedelic trip that you are surrounded by loving energy.

The videos below may increase your experience since they are highly artistic visual creations accompanied by appropriate musical scores. That said, if you get a bad feeling from any of them, just stop watching and watch something you do enjoy. Environment is key, and I don’t want anyone to have a bad trip.

If you aren’t tripping, don’t worry! These videos are pretty awesome regardless. Just remember to watch in High definition.

Let us know in the comments which other videos you like to watch when you’re tripping.
‘Aves del Valle,’ by Armadillo: Animated Music Video from Colombia

Armadillo is a band that sprouted out of a creative coincidence in Valledupar, Colombia (the land of Vallenato). Mauricio Álvarez (Cero39) and Diego Maldonado (DeJuepuchas & La MiniTK del Miedo), met up with a bunch of local musicians in that town and started a jam session. The result, an album with 9 tracks, a musical journey through the sounds and timbres of vallenato, mixed with electronic and IDM beats and sequences.

The video centers around symbols and elements inherent to the culture and imaginarium of the Valle de Upar (later called Valledupar). Animals, colors and textures appear throughout the video undergoing change and evolve, as life does. ‘It’s a metaphor about culture in life’ says RAMA, it’s creator.

In 1950s experiment artist used LSD and drew the same portrait for 8 hours to show how it affects Brain

in Art/Chill Space/Home/LSD/Psychedelics by

In the 1950s the US government did a lot of experiments with psychotomimetic drugs (in fact, as anybody who’s seen or read ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ will know, the US government used to do all sorts of weird and wonderful experiments). One of these experiments included feeding human test subjects measured quantities of LSD and then monitoring their ensuing behavior.

In one particular experiment, Oscar Janiger, a University of California-Irvine psychiatrist known for his work on acid, gave an artist an activity box full of crayons and asked him to draw his experiences on LSD. And as you can see from these 9 illuminating images, the results are just as trippy as you’d expect. Things start out normally enough, but it doesn’t take long before the artist’s perception of reality starts to warp, and his drawings (which were recently uploaded by somebody called juraganyeri) capture in fascinating detail the various stages of his hallucinogenic journey, from the beginning of his trip right through to his comedown.

#1 Time: 20 Minutes After The First Dose (50ug)

An attending doctor observes – Patient chooses to start drawing with charcoal. The subject of the experiment reports – ‘Condition normal… no effect from the drug yet’.

 

#2 Time: 85 Minutes After First Dose And 20 Minutes After A Second Dose Has Been Administered (50ug + 50ug)

The patient seems euphoric. ‘I can see you clearly, so clearly. This… you… it’s all… I’m having a little trouble controlling this pencil. It seems to want to keep going.’

 

#3 Time: 2 Hours 30 Minutes After First Dose

Patient appears very focused on the business of drawing. ‘Outlines seem normal, but very vivid – everything is changing colour. My hand must follow the bold sweep of the lines. I feel as if my consciousness is situated in the part of my body that’s now active – my hand, my elbow… my tongue’.

 

 

#4 Time: 2 Hours 32 Minutes After First Dose

Patient seems gripped by his pad of paper. ‘I’m trying another drawing. The outlines of the model are normal, but now those of my drawing are not. The outline of my hand is going weird too. It’s not a very good drawing, is it? I give up – I’ll try again…’

 

#5 Time: 2 Hours 35 Minutes After First Dose

The patient follows quickly with another drawing. ‘I’ll do a drawing in one flourish… without stopping… one line, no break!’ Upon completing the drawing the patient starts laughing, then becomes startled by something on the floor.

 

#6 Time: 2 Hours 45 Minutes After First Dose

The patient tries to climb into activity box, and is generally agitated – responds slowly to the suggestion he might like to draw some more. He has become largely non-verbal. ‘I am… everything is… changed… they’re calling… your face… interwoven… who is…’ Patient mumbles inaudibly to a tune (sounds like ‘Thanks for the memory’). He changes medium to Tempera.

 

#7 Time: 4 Hours 25 Minutes After First Dose

Patient retreated to the bunk, spending approximately 2 hours lying, waving his hands in the air. His return to the activity box is sudden and deliberate, changing media to pen and water colour.) ‘This will be the best drawing, like the first one, only better. If I’m not careful I’ll lose control of my movements, but I won’t, because I know. I know’ – (this saying is then repeated many times) Patient makes the last half-a-dozen strokes of the drawing while running back and forth across the room.

 

#8 Time: 5 Hours 45 Minutes After First Dose

Patient continues to move about the room, intersecting the space in complex variations. It’s an hour and a half before he settles down to draw again – he appears over the effects of the drug. ‘I can feel my knees again, I think it’s starting to wear off. This is a pretty good drawing – this pencil is mighty hard to hold’ – (he is holding a crayon).

 

#9 Time: 8 Hours After First Dose

Patient sits on bunk bed. He reports the intoxication has worn off except for the occasional distorting of our faces. We ask for a final drawing which he performs with little enthusiasm. ‘I have nothing to say about this last drawing, it is bad and uninteresting, I want to go home now.’

LSD blotter art – How illegal drug distribution turned into art

in Art/Home/LSD/Psychedelics by

LSD blotter art – How illegal drug distribution turned into art.

Can illegal drug distribution turn into an artform? Can collecting art get you in jail? And how did a system for labeling illegal substances turned into a way of preserving psychedelic culture’s history and a thriving collector’s’ market? And where can you learn about all that? Answers and a glimpse into almost 50 years of LSD art inside.

Albert Hofmann (11 January 1906 – 29 April 2008) was a Swiss scientist who was the first person to synthesize, ingest, and learn of the psychedelic effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), a drug that came to be synonymous with the 50s and 60s beatnik and hippy generations in The USA and worldwide. LSD was legal in the beginning including in The USA until it became illegal in California on October 6, 1966, and other states and countries soon followed.

While it was legal LSD was distributed mostly in liquid form and as pills, capsules, or sometimes dropped onto sugar cubes. It was available for purchase from Sandoz laboratories in Switzerland, where Hofmann worked and many medical applications were under research.

After the US government made LSD illegal people continued to use LSD, but it was manufactured and distributed through underground illegal channels. A popular way of distributing LSD was called “blotter”. It involved saturating absorbent blotting paper with liquid LSD. Later the papers were perforated along the lines of a grid so that doses could be torn apart easily, and small symbolic pictures were added to the paper to provide clues as to the origin of the LSD that paper contained. Not surprisingly, considering the substance it was used to distribute, the symbolic pictures gradually became creative and amazing designs, later gaining independent existence any many designs have never been used to actually distribute LSD.

Original Perforating machine (via Blotter Barn)

Original Perforating machine (via Blotter Barn)The guy who originally gave space to blotter art and identified it as an art form was Mark McCloud, a San Francisco based artist and former art professor. His collection – part of which you can find on his website, Blotter Barn – started in the 70s and today he has over 400 framed prints and tens of thousands (!!!) of unframed sheets, constituting the largest collection of blotter art in the world.

In the early days blotter art could only be obtained with LSD already on it. McCloud bought these sheets, matted and framed them, and hung them like fine art. It was initially quite difficult for McCloud to collect the undipped (and hence legal) sheets of art, so he’d have to venture out into the underground and ask dealers if they could get him the same image on an undipped sheet, but over time he won people’s trust and managed to get hold of undipped sheets. Later on he also began to produce his own images and his collection has shifted to a completely legal blotter art archive.

Tetragrammaton, 1977. (via Blotter Barn)

Tetragrammaton, 1977. (via Blotter Barn)That did not prevent him from experiencing troubles with law enforcements agencies and he was prosecuted in 1992 and again 2003, but acquitted both times, after long and costly legal battles. You can learn more about McCloud and his collection by visiting his house in San Francisco, which hosts a free museum dedicated to it, which he calls: “The Institute of Illegal Images”.Another person that took blotter art to a new dimension was Thomas Lyttle, who after a meeting with Mark McCloud, started my his own collection of undipped blotter art. After collecting for a while, he started to approach people central to psychedelic culture, such as Albert Hofmann, Timothy Leary, Ken Kesey and many others, and asked them to sign limited edition, hand-numbered blotter art prints. These then were matted and framed per museum display specs, and sold. This was the beginning of what has been termed “vanity” blotter art. That is, blotter art which has been produced solely for art’s sake as a collectible, and which was never intended to be dipped with any drugs. Some autographed vanity blotter art has been advertised for sale for thousands of Dollars.

Timothy Leary signed blotter art “Rose & Pearls” by Mouse/Kelly (via Worthpoint)

These days blotter art seems to be thriving, there are websites dedicated to it, and it sells world wide, a thriving collector’s market exists too, and pieces are sold for very high prices, with no LSD involved in the process. A long way from how it all started almost 50 years ago.

The magical Alex Grey

Alex grey needs no introduction, as is THE master of psychedelic art. He is considered as one of the most known Psy-artists in the world, and his art spans over different of forms, including performance art, process art, installation art, sculpture, visionary art, and painting. He and his wife, Allyson, are the co-founders of The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM), a non-profit church supporting Visionary Culture in Wappingers Falls, New York.

Alex_Grey

 

His art is a complex integration of body, mind, and spirit. It blends the physical realms of the human body (which he learned during his studies of human anatomy at the Harvard Medical School), with the energetic fields of the mystics, which he learned from years of meditation and use of psychedelic drugs, especially LSD. His highly detailed paintings are spiritual and scientific in equal measure, revealing his psychedelic, spiritual and super-natural view of the human race.

Alex Grey – The art

Grey is most famous for his secred mirrors series. The 21 life-sized paintings series (that took him around 10 years to complete), takes the viewer on a journey toward their own divine nature by examining, in detail, the body, mind, and spirit. It that present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution.

Grey’s paintings have been featured in venues as diverse as the album art of Tool, The String Cheese Incident, Meshuggah, the Beastie Boys and Nirvana, Newsweek magazine, the Discovery Channel, Rave flyers and sheets of blotter acid. His work has been exhibited worldwide, including Feature Inc., Tibet House,Stux Gallery, P.S. 1, The Outsider Art Fair and the New Museum in NYC, the Grand Palais in Paris, the Sao Paulo Biennial in Brazil.

Here is a small collection of his endless psychedelic paintings:

Psychedelic GIFs by Bill Tavis

in Art/Chill Space/Psychedelics by

A couple of years ago this talented artist painted oil on canvas and drew halftone images with ink on paper. Now Bill Tavis creates stunning illusion GIFs with programs he has coded himself. What they have in common is the halftone style in which lines of varying width are drawn to create the illusion of a tonal or color image.

Psychedelic Sunset

Tavis likes to express himself in different directions with visual arts. ”I think the mark of a true artist is someone that can create something beautiful given any medium – whether it’s oil painting with fancy brushes, or drawing in the sand with a stick,” he said in an interview for Ask Artist.

He also made an animation for symphonist Nathan Felix, which you can see in the videp in the bottom.

“Imagine the past, future, and linear time are gone,” Pollett explained to A+. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. I can create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work.”

Kaleidoscopic Street Art by Douglas Hoekzema

in Art/Chill Space/Home by

Miami-based artist Douglas Hoekzema, also known as Hoxxoh, creates incredibly beautiful kaleidoscopic murals. By layering different colored continuous rings, he can turn a plain wall into a hypnotizing portal-looking mural that looks like you could be sucked in if you stand too close!

With his art, Hoxxoh wants to show people a different way of viewing time. Rather than trying to control time, he believes people should let its predetermined course take control. Basically, his art represents what happens when we let go of our control of time.

“As I live with the wall and hear the public thoughts, I begin to find endless meanings and perspectives [to my work]. I really enjoy the range of reactions to my work such as, for some people it’s spiritual and for others is very psychedelic. But for me it’s more of just a love for painting.”
