What is Hyper-Psych Art?



HYPER = A prefix used in mathematics to denote four or more dimensions.
A prefix often used in scientific and technical words, to denote something above or beyond the usual, normal, expected.
Beyond a level that is safe or healthy.
Sometimes used to mean extreme or specifically "more than super".
A slang term used to describe a state in which a person is abnormally excitable and exuberant.

PSYCH = Slang for "psychedelic", specifically psychedelic rock music.
A slang word for...
- a psychiatric ward;
- to mentally prepare;
- to manipulate the way in which a person or group of people perceive reality.
The word is derived from the Greek word "psyche" which means "of the mind and/or the soul".

The hyper-psych process includes, but is not limited to;
psychic automatism,
abstract expressionism,
primitivism,
lowbrow-pop-surrealism and recombinant free association (both imply a type of twisted appropriation, a form of 'psychic pop vandalism' if you will)
