Albert Hofmann’s bicycle trip reanimated

24 May

This is how it must have been on that crucial day on April 16th 1943, in the middle of WWII, when Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann accidentally poured LSD on himself and  inadvertently became the  the first LSD user, actually startkicking the psychedelic movement. The bicycle trip, which became the most famous bicycle trip ever, was actually 3 days later, on the 19th of April, when Hofmann took his second and much stronger LSD dose, but who cares. Beautiful animation! Perfect for an LSD trip, I guess.
