Observations from Modern Consciousness Research
By Stanislav Grof with artwork by H.R. Giger
Foreword by art historian Claudia Müller-Eberling
Stanislav Grof, the pioneer of consciousness research, interprets HR Giger’s visionary world for the first time from the perspective of transpersonal psychology in this unique essay. To date, HR Giger’s images have been described in myriad variations, but never before within the context of the social relevance of his art. With his interpretation of the claustrophobic, nightmarish aspects of Giger’s art, Grof allows for a new, more profound understanding of the overall work.
“I don’t know anybody else who has so accurately portrayed the soul of modern humanity. A few decades from now, when they talk about the 20th century, they will think of Giger.”
