Peripheral Psychosis is the collaborative effort of renowned Cyberpunk/Bizarro author Kenji Siratori and Michael Page, artist and founder of power electronics/ambient/noise projects Fire in the Head,... More > Sky Burial and Irukandji. This work is a hybrid of Siratori’s highly experimental and uncompromising style and Page’s stream of consciousness prose and poetry where moments of lucidity punctuate the seemingly random, dis-jointed state of transcendental dream in which neurosis and technology mutate, rendering the thought process no longer recognizable as purely human.
