Jeremy Shaw’s work explores altered states and the cultural and scientific practices that aspire to, or attempt to map, transcendental experience. Adopting strategies from the realms of conceptual art, documentary film, music video, and scientific research, Shaw’s work has addressed topics ranging from psychedelic drug use and brain imaging, to teenage violence and time travel. Presented at MoMA PS1 in a new, expanded configuration, Best Minds Part One (Expanded)‘s three-channel video installation features slowed-down footage of the crowd at a straight edge hardcore concert in Vancouver, Canada.
