Pigment print on perforated acid-free paper
Edition of 5, with unique tab tear-off

Four editioned works were made for an exhibition at the Ulster University's School of Art in Belfast. 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 (non-degree-awarding precursor to the University) and the Co-Op department store (original occupant of one of the School's key buildings, since demolished). 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.
