The brilliant chemist Sasha Schulgin once commented on some fascinating research on administration of fluent DMT on the mycelium of the fungus GOLDEN TEACHER (conducted by a team of German scientists):

You throw DMT on and you get 4-hydroxy-DMT out and that is psilocin. Perhaps if you threw Mickey Mouse in you would get 4-hydroxy-Mickey Mouse out. It is as if the psyche of the fungus not really worries about what it is working with. It was simply forced to do its holy duty to 4-hydroxilate every tryptamine it came across.

This observation corresponds directly with Christian Finne’s way of making art. He detects a subject and this subject becomes converted for it’s own private Idaho. Or told in another way it fulfils his need for idiosyncratic and non-linear theory and practice. 93 93/93
