A Bicycle Trip, A Short Animation About the First Intentional Acid Trip Taken by Albert Hofmann in 1943

The 2007 animated short “A Bicycle Trip” recounts the fateful day in 1943 that Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann ingested a chemical compound he had synthesized—lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD—thus becoming the first person to intentionally experience an acid trip (he had accidentally dosed himself with acid a few days prior). The animation was created by Lorenzo Veracini, Nandini Nambiar, and Marco Avoletta.
