PSYTROPE

2012
Psytrope is a system of divinatory dispensers placed in public spaces func- tioning only at night. In exchange for a coin, a passerby receives a message diagnosing the person’s state and recommends a solution. Out of curiosity, mysticism, or even banter, the user is pushed by the mechanical authority of these machines to act in the real world. These machines are a poetic response to the crucial questions that accompany our every steps and to which we cannot reply to with entire rationality.
