Co-Op 150ug, 2020
c. 5.75 x 8.25 inches
Inkjet on perforated acid-free paper
Edition of 5, with unique tab tear-off

Four postcard-sized works were made for an exhibition at the Belfast School of Art. The works play on the tradition of psychedelic blotter art, in each case using as the basis of their designs the logo of an organization with historical links to the School of Art—The Ulster Polytechnic and the Co-Op department store. The works are printed on paper perforated in 1/4 inch squares, the format traditionally used for distributing doses of the hallucinogenic drug lysergic acid diethylamide. Each sheet of the edition is custom-torn to suggest a portion of the tabs have been consumed.
