The semionaut often mixes the rigour and neutrality of post-conceptual art practices with something we might call an errorism of cyborg brainwaves. Psychedelia as a critical cognitive technology oriented towards manipulating our pattern recognition into hallucinatory experience comes to play both in itself, like a manifest and in relation to Soviet-time Estonian avant-garde underground typescript artworks by Raul Meel which have been mutated, scratched and thus make to live a second life. In melting away of letters into liquid signifiers and fractals the breakthrough of Real starts to relativise our rational mindset.
