For this autobiographical experiment, Brinson decided to employ the scientific method, based on the formulation of a hypothesis and the performing of tests, in order to self-estimate whether he needed or not to be on antidepressants, while attempting to demonstrate how the assimilation of psychoactive drugs impacted upon his storytelling. At the outset of his video, Brinson renders the beholder aware that, This video is not a critique of our medical institutions because I acquired the medication at a clinic without the supervision of a therapist […].

I scored a sixty-three on this test that proved that I required medication for depression. Is it the pill or the person creating a self? And if a pill can produce a self that feels satisfied and taking it away makes one feel not oneself, does the self become a social object?
