Hungarian artist Bence Agoston’s MOOD specs probably won’t help you trip so hard you see the ultimate nature of the Universe, but they will replicate some of the visuals you might experience while on hallucinogens. Post on the artist’s Behance site, these 3D printed frames are paired with a set of six different kaleidoscopic lens that, when rotated, create a number of fun patterns, based on the Moiré effect.
The artist describes his red, green, and blue filters in this way, “Because each color filters the incoming lights differently, and the patterns can overlap each other or leave blank fields, the new view is completely random and twisted.”
The artist makes no direct reference to LSD, but he does say that the ideal time to use them might be while listening to psychedelic music, “The ideal situation for use is during travel, when people listen to music, just looking out the window and watching the ever-changing sights, in perfect harmony with the music. The shape is designed with the aim of simplicity and distinctness, as if the wearer belongs to a kind of subculture.”
