C11H17NO3 - Pop the Cactus
The video 'Pop the cactus' is one part of the intermedial project 'C11H17NO3'.
It is named after the chemical compound Mescalin, which is known for its psychedelic
effects and occurs in the peyote cactus. Book and Video are an audiovisual translation
using the cactus as a symbol for defense and sculpturing an abstract process of quitting mental
defense mechanisms in order to break through limiting borders.
A project by Samara Hammud and Julian Loscher at Berlin University of the Arts, July, 2017.
