The Office of Sigmund Fraud was / is a little performance art experiment run by KOMBOH for the purposes of seeing whether total strangers would pay $20 for discount therapy (and an ink portrait) without coercion. Sit down with us and we’ll give you a psychiatric evaluation on the spot using sophisticated techniques like ‘what color are your shoes?’ and ‘how much time left until our next break?’. There was a binary INSANE / NOT INSANE stamp system used to identify subjects post-analysis.

It was a resounding success.

Concept / Visual Design – KOMBOH
Writing – KOMBOH & B. Kennedy
Sigmund Fraud – Zak Halas
Portrait Artist – Douglas Nhung

A little personal project about my own insecurities. Address the world with an unflinching formality and you remove all ambiguity, fear, and humanity. Sold these books at Market Collective, although I can’t imagine many people using them as intended.

Part of the 33.3.3 show @ Gallery1988 in LA that happened at the end of 2014. The original cover to this seminal album is such a weird garbage mess that it was hard to resist reworking it a little.
