Like early experiments with LSD in the 1950’s, these colorful illustrations combine scientific pursuits with mind altering states of mind. “Science vs. Delirium” a series of illustrations by graphic designer Simon Bent, was created to re-popularize some of the greatest scientific figures from history, ranging from Marie Curie to Sigmund Freud. The designs focus heavily on the hair and grooming of each individual, playfully mixing in psychedelic patterns reminiscent of the 60’s. See more trippy scientists at volume2a.com.
