Psychic Dirt

Robbie Thomson (UK)

Following his work XFRMR presented in 2016 for MELBOURNE FESTIVAL, ROBBIE THOMSON returns to The SUBSTATION with a series of six panels created specifically for The SUBSTATION billboards.

PSYCHIC DIRT explores psychedelic tropes, mystical imagery and the paranoid undercurrents of modern life, taking inspiration from a wide range of sources including astronomy, medical imagery, landscape photography, science-fiction and protest posters.

The work uses high contrast black and white digital collage and hand-cut techniques to create illusionary optical effects and pulsating visual rhythms along the length of the building.

Presented by The SUBSTATION and CRYPTIC.
