The 80s are an interesting period for psychedelic aesthetics. Hippies were declared outdated by punk rock in the 70s and after that psychedelic aesthetics had to blend with the images of the time to stay relevant. And they did — with great success. A lot of the visual tropes of psychedelic aesthetics had already established themselves in visual culture. Straight lines and plain surfaces now cooled down the arabesque imagination of the 60s, yet still shapes constantly morphed into each other and lines began dancing out of nowhere. What used to be associated with the influence of mind altering substances now got linked to limitless possibilities of new technology and media.
