On mescaline. "If the gates of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to men as it is: INFINITE."

Aldous Huxley 1954

My latest contribution for Reportagen Magazine #63, February 2022. The historical reportage. Aldous Huxley describes one of his self-experiments with mescaline, the substance originally extracted from the peyote cactus. Since its synthesis, it can also be produced artificially.

The double-page spread shows a sober view of the peyote cactus and a psychedelic interpretation of it. The sober version is a collaboration with my partner Lina Müller.
