Android Jones delivering his 2017 Palenque Norte Lecture

PROGRAM NOTES:

Date this lecture was recorded: August 2017

Today’s podcast features the Palenque Norte Lecture given by visionary artist Android Jones at the 2017 Burning Man Festival. Rather than give a structured lecture, Jones answers questions from the audience about the process he uses, including the use of entheogens, to create the fantastical images that we have seen on album covers, festival posters, live performances, and online at YouTube and Vimeo. If you have ever wondered how a work of art, such as his intriguing video titled Samskara came about, this evening conversation on the playa with Android Jones will fascinate you.

[NOTE: The following quotations are by Android Jones

[When facing a blank canvas] “you’ve got all these possibilities, and every time you make a decision the infinite possibilities are collapsing. By making a piece of art we are actually collapsing infinity. Every yes is a no to every other thing that you do.”

“I don’t take psychedelics to try to understand some sort of like forth dimensional entities’ agenda on Earth. I take psychedelics so I can understand the majesty of nature. I take psychedelics and I study the ways that trees grow. I take psychedelics and I look at the way that bees will start moving around the hives and the shapes they make. Psychedelics are not inspiring, but they help me gain a whole new level of insight into what is the most inspiring thing, which is just raw, beautiful nature that’s around us all the time.”

“I like making art more than sex. I like it more than any other thing that there is. . . . I’m a junkie for that deep creative flow space.”
