There must be a difference between imagining LSD and ingesting it, experiencing it through language and experiencing it through chemistry, as thought and as image. But what exactly is this difference? Through a live thought experiment – Imagining the brain closer than the eyes – Anastasia Yumeko Hill, artist, writer, and daughter of featured artist Gary Hill, explores the ambiguous borderlands between words and images, the touching and the touched, the bodily and the lingual found on exhibit in Gary Hill: glossodelic attractors.
Anastasia received her B.F.A in Fine Art Media from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Film and Media Studies program at the University of California Santa Barbara. Her work develops and explores ‘psychonautic media’ and models of alloperception. She also teaches video art at Cornish College of the Arts.
