Psychonaut is a kaleidoscopic adventure into a vibrant world of seeming randomness, a collection of one-of-a-kind assemblages without editions and without using Photoshop that is her most personal work to date. Psychonaut explores the journey of a spiritual seeker who uses altered states of consciousness to address spiritual questions in a modern way, without the use of psilocybin.

Eisner draws inspiration from the kindred spirit of Buckminster Fuller and his geodesic domes, Native American culture, geometry, nature, birds, and a homegrown spirituality.


Her method is to, “accidentally discover what isn’t an accident” by working hands-on with the images. She is informed by the colors and textures of the photos rather than the themes and composition, and allows the process to guide the series. What emerges is a handcrafted, three-dimensional psychedelic explosion that is alternately bright and soothing, meditative and disorienting. Psychonaut does not explain but self-propagates the creative source from where it came. Eisner collaborated with Matt Monroe on the dome structure for Psychonaut and with Haley Alexander van Oosten/L’Oeil du Vert on the scent sculptures.
