Altered States


The intention of my Studio project was to create an informative and experimental research publication on the subject of “Altered States of Consciousness”.

My project is a curated a selection of academic readings and essays, internet articles and interviews that give context to three overarching types of Altered States: Psychoactive, Natural and Mental.

My first section explores the way psychoactive drugs such as LSD alter the mind, the second section explores Altered States through natural methods such as practicing meditation or hypnosis and the final section explores the way mental illnesses such as psychosis or schizophrenia can alter perception and consciousness.
