Experiments in Hypnosis: Floor Drawing II

    In November 2012, Alexandra Janelli from Theta Spring hypnotized me. The goal of the session was to enable me to make drawings while in the hypnotic state. I received a recording of the session that I could listen to, and the recording would put me in a hypnotic trance where I could make drawings.  In this video, I listened to the recording and made a drawing on the floor of my studio. Then I proceeded to destroy the drawing by sweeping it up. All of the drawings I have done under hypnosis I have been alone, except this one.  The recording that I listen to is twenty minutes long and the trance usually lasts for thirty minutes. The sound is my edited version of the recorded session. This short video begins and ends in black and white, while the middle is in color. It represents going into a hypnotic state and then falling out of that trance.
