Gysin leg lamp

Yesterday when I was doing some unfortunate stomach exercises on a strange contraption that requires you to go up and down sidewards, everytime I twisted down there was a man’s leg right in front of my eyes. His whole calf had a tattoo wrapped around it which had a medley of colours and perhaps a buddha, who became a frog and then had a bit of a fairy in him.

It was the closest I’ve come to Bryan Gysin’s lamp he invented, the dream machine…. eventually the wrapped around canvas on his leg starting turning in front of my eyes just like Gysin’s lamp did. Live, vivid, no electricity required. It proved a limited exposure since the exercise is loathsome and I never wish to prolong it beyond five.
