I come from a long line of dopamine addicts. A long line of rapid firing neurons, all predisposed to love the feelings of: romance, sex, drugs, and food. We are a group of Hedonists: those who live to enjoy the pleasures in life. And it’s so strong in our bloodline, that some of us balance a fine line between insanity and reality every time we indulge. But that doesn’t stop us. We are not afraid to cross that line – that boundary that separates the mentally healthy, from the mentally disturbed. Because we love the rush of the teeter totter – up and down, up and down, and finally… SMACK! A dopamine imbalance knocks you off your ass. And what does one do after that? Create a Zine and call it Brain Chemistry – obviously.
We can’t control what our brains were born with, but we can shape it, edit it, unlearn things, learn new things, and reframe bad habits. And we can create art to show the world what it feels like to live inside of our brains.
