[✍] My plans for 2016


My Psychoactive project is finished. For me (and for all who participated) it was a journey into the unknown, also a certain addiction… to the music and coffee. The project codenamed [ψ+] is not finished yet. It is about texts (in particular, my correspondence with Jess) and graphics for the […]
