Description

The author  concludes and summarizes his interpretation of the psyfestival as a product of countless iterations and programming decisions determining form. Impacted by sometimes competing expectations, conditioned by various responsibilities, operationalized through diverse artifice, challenged by adversaries, it is a contested and sometimes controversial arena subject to negotiation.
