Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

'Kaleidoscope' is a visual response to the work of Philip K. Dick.

This piece experiments with the process of collage; using found imagery - predominantly from botanical textbooks.

Philip K. Dick was a science fiction novelist whose work examines social and political themes, metaphysics and altered states. Continually questioning reality, Dick often explored paranoia, schizophrenia and drug abuse. Inspired by psychedelic and optic art, this piece is a kaleidoscopic collage influenced by Philip K. Dick and particularly 'A Scanner Darkly'.

Hand-cut collage.
