Hallucinatory Participation: See Art, Be Art

2018, digital prints

Using a kaleidoscopic lens to document museum goers, Charlie Milgrim’s new photo series re-contextualizes the experience of viewing Bill Ham’s light art installation from the De Young Museum’sSummer of Love exhibition. By psychedelically superimposing the viewer onto the digital light show, the visitor becomes an active element. The lens alters the view of the spectator creating a hallucinogenic circle, where nothing interrupts the illusion.
