Lysergic acid diethylamide. It’s been a long time, but my memory is it kind of shatters your ego. At least it did mine. And then you reassemble the shards until you recognize yourself again, but that self has left behind a thousand preconceptions of what you were programmed to be. That leaves open a lot of possibilities, many of which I might never have realized without the assistance of this clever chemical. After all these years, I often find myself making things like these masks, faces that might be souvenirs of journeys into that incredible universe of wonders and terrors. - Michael Lipsey
