Psychological Hypnosis actually have several thousand years of history, gazing some of artworks make ourself go into a state of self-hypnosis. According to Wang Xin’s artist statement, the frequency brain waves of human being is eight hertz when being hypnotized. When brain wave of someone remains 4-8 Hz θ, his consciousness is interrupted, his body gets deep relaxed, this reach to the high level of mental state. We often hear of “trance” when people are hypnotised.
The hypnosis lab of Wang Xin is blue, when the participants enter into this space, they need to adapt to the blue, after being long-term exposed in this small blue room, the participants feel kind of dizzy and smug. In fact, the process of art-making, sometimes is also the interaction between people. Some of arts can only be satisfactorily completed whilst the participants join to work.
