Announcing the Launch of the World’s First Psychedelic Video Museum

16 Apr

Today, on the day of Albert Hofmann’s first accidental LSD trip (3 days before official bicycle day), we are thrilled and excited to announce the inauguration of the world’s first Psychedelic Video Museum, a direct upshot of ten years of activity on this website, the Daily Psychedelic Video. The spectacular inauguration ritual will take place virtually on Bicycle Day at 3PM Eastern Time/12PM Pacific Time (noon)/8PM Greenwich Time/10PM Jerusalem Time.

After ten years of posting on psychedelic video a day, and with around 4,000 videos curated over the last decade, the DPV is the biggest collection of psychedelic videos on the web, and a global hub for psychedelic video fans.

Now, the time has come to take the mission of psychedelic beauty and joy to the next level. We are proud to give you the world’s first psychedelic video museum, a pioneering online museum resonating the current renaissance in psychedelic culture.

The new online museum features 700 videos carefully selected from the DPV collections and curated by themes, periods, styles and places. It includes 45 exhibitions with titles like “Soviet Psychedelia,” “Japanese Psychedelia,” “Israeli Psychedelia,” “Sixties Psychedelia,” “Oldie Psychedelia,” “Psychedelic Art Videos,” “Psychedelic Cinema,” “Psychedelic Animation,” “Psychedelic Hip Hop,” “Tribal Psychedelia,” “Psychedelic Activism,” etc. It utilizes the unique knowledgebase created in a decade of curating psychedelic videos in the DPV in order to offer its visitors a pioneering display of psychedelic video creativity.

Appearing in a period of a widely publicized “psychedelic renaissance” and renewed interest in the therapeutic potential of psychedelics, the new museum adds a much-needed cultural dimension to the current psychedelic revival. In recent years, psychedelic art has received growing attention and was featured in prominent exhibitions by world-class museums such as London’s V&A museum and San Francisco’s de Young Museum. Art scholars and cultural critics have pointed to the seminal role played by psychedelia in shaping contemporary art and culture. The time is therefore ripe for a first museum exploring this ubiquitous and highly influential artistic style.

At a time when publics worldwide are called upon to safely stay at home, and in which it is impossible to travel in physical space, we are proud to allow our visitors a journey into their minds, to find beauty and joy even in grim, challenging days.  The Coronavirus period has been accompanied by a new interest in virtual museums and exhibition spaces. Most, however, provide only dim online versions of their physical selves. The Psychedelic Video Museum, by contrast, is the brainchild of the web, conceived as a purely digital effort and native to an era of digital art spaces.

The site will officially launch on the 19th of April 2020, on Bicycle Day (celebrating the 77th anniversary of the discovery of LSD), in a psychomagical online ceremony. Join us for the inauguration ritual of the Psychedelic Video Museum, where artists and wizards from different parts of the globe will consecrate the museum with performance, speech, dance, music and ritual.

Max Cooper – Perpetual Motion (Official Video by Nick Cobby)

21 Feb

 

Max’s idea for Perpetual Motion was to document the continuous movement of people, exploring how there is no inherent meaning in life, only our own meaning which we create through striving towards our goals. When we discussed the idea of the film, Max and I felt Mexico City was the perfect place to use as a canvas. A sprawling metropolis of 9 million people, all packed in tight and some really interesting land forms and architecture. I then got the idea of using drones when scouting for locations on Google Earth. There were some amazing geometric forms that when viewed from above give an entirely different perspective of the city. I was really interested in the juxtaposition of these orderly forms with the irregular, disorderly chaos confined within it. For me it really helped push the idea of living as part of a perpetual system. I collaborated with 3 very talented Mexican photographers who shot some incredible footage for me, Manuel Marañón, Roberto H and Santiago Arau. It was a pleasure to collaborate with them and I hope the film can be shown in Mexico some time soon. For the animation side, I collaborated with Andy Lomas and Jessica In, integrating their forms frame by frame into the drone footage with my own point data, aiming to create unexpected transitions and connections between reality, hyper realism and the hidden systems beneath.

The beauty of the analog signal, and its inherent wildness and unpredictability, is the inspiration for “The Imaginary”. Formed from repurposed analog video and audio signal processing, and channeled through After Effects using Trapcode, “The Imaginary” creates an immersive structure that contains the spontaneous stream of imaginary thought.

We experience life and evolve through digital spaces that hold less and less meaning to us every day. As we are acting everyday more like them, our quest to understand the machines who encrypt our data has become closer to an identity crisis.

In 2008, programmer and glitch artist Doron Adler wrote the world’s first mobile client for streaming live video from the iPhone to the web. This was done for jailbroken iPhone (1st gen), before it had any official video support! But there was one small problem… the images were sampled from buffers of six frames, the order of which was unknown, causing a jerky glitch effect… I was hooked! Unfortunately, the original videos are no longer available, so for the past few weeks, Doron’s nostalgia and my obsession drove us to try and recreate the effect. And now you can too! junkie is an online glitcher that applies short-window frame shuffling, and we made it optionally cross-channel “for better effect”. Wait for the drop:

Doron explains how he made this clip:
1. Found on YouTube – a black & white video called “1920s Dance Craze
2. Colorized it with DeOldefiy
3. Found on SoundCloud – A royalty free dubstep song
4. Ran junkie on the Colorized video and got many junkie-glitched flavors (different parameter choices)
5. Cropped parts I liked from each flavor
6. Edited the cropped parts and added the soundtrack with iMovie
