The Bicycle Days is a psychedelic exercise in design, highlighting often overlooked graphics and images lost in deep corners of the internet. Each piece is a collage of graphics highlighted by a psychedelic color scheme to bring new life to old imagery.
The name ‘Bicycle Days’ is a direct homage to the discovery of LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) by scientist Albert Hoffman in 1943, where he ingested a threshold dose of the chemical and experienced it’s true effects while riding his bike home from his laboratory. The name also reflects the many hours I’ve spent riding a bicycle where many of my creative ideas have formed during miles of pedaling.
The idea was conceived as you have guessed it, under the influence of LSD. I often feel the need to be creative without any real goal in mind, this project allows my mind to be free while satisfying my need to be creative.
