PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Niles Heckman.]

“The visual component of the psychedelic experience is for the most part the final frontier for what computer graphics still have yet to replicate faithfully.”

“Art isn’t really important unless it helps you grow in creating it, or it helps others grow through its consumption.”

“Computer graphics are, and will continue to be, the tool used to visualize what is essentially unlanguageable.”

“It’s really fascinating that indigenous people have essentially been uploading themselves to much more advanced organic realms for potentially thousands of years, if not more, seeing imagery that’s much more complex than what you can see in a Hollywood summer blockbuster today.”

“Psychedelic experiences, whether real or future replicated, if done responsibly, aren’t negative escapism but could be a true awakening process for more people, because we are not human beings that can have spiritual experiences, we are spiritual beings having human experiences.”

“Ambitions are competitive, aspirations are not. Aspirations take nothing from anyone else and injure no one else and allow you as a sovereign individual to grow, because that’s why we’re all here.”
