Next week, on Thursday August 12, West Portal Books (111 West Portal Ave., San
Francisco) launches a month-long Brion Gysin Dreamachine window display, featuring the psychoactive gadget in round-the-clock operation.
Though mild entheogenic effects may be felt through the window or inside the store during business hours, optimum viewing is experienced after dark with eyes closed. This will be the Bay Area's first ever Dreamachine exhibit, other than the machine's brief appearance during a William S. Burroughs memorial service held at the SF Art Institute in 1999. Currently on display at West Portal Books, through August 11, is a Wishing Machine. The peculiar devices find literary companionship through Burroughs' work.
