Dance of the Opium Poppies
Elena Bajo, Dance of the Opium Poppies, 2021
The artwork Dance of the Opium Poppies is part of the project A Growing Wave Breaks in the Shore of Time (Tomorrow I was a Plant), part of a bigger body of work that is called the Cosmic Distress Series, that investigates psychoactive plant systems as narrators of their own ecological consciousness from an Eco-Psycho-active feminist perspective. In this project, the human brain becomes a plant brain, human becoming plant, plants being channeled by humans, the materialization of the Psychoactive effects visible and discursive.
