Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
Machina Delion – Seattle, WA
I go artistically by Machina Delion and my medium is erotic photography. A big influence of mine is Terrence McKenna – I’m deeply moved by his speeches on the psychedelic experience, Jungian psychology, mysticism, and other topics as they relate to natural human processes and endeavors. McKenna has pointed out there is something fundamentally erotic about the psychedelic experience. In my opinion, the reverse of that is also true: there is something fundamentally psychedelic about the erotic experience. My images are attempts to document that. I am trying to create imagery that is not only sexy but also speaks to evolutionary archetypes as well as futuristic possibilities that we have yet to actualize.
