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.

心理催眠其实有好几千年的历史,有时在观看艺术也会进入到一种自我催眠的状态。就艺术家王欣的说法,八赫兹是人脑被催眠时的脑波频率。当人的脑波为θ波4-8赫兹时,人的意识中断,身体深沉放松,这是一种高层次的精神状态,也就是我们常听到的「入定」,人被催眠时的脑波就是维持在这个范围里面,这个时候,人容易被带有暗示性的指令催眠。

 

王欣在他的催眠实验室里选了蓝色,使参与者一进到这个空间就要去适应蓝色,人的肉眼长期暴露在蓝色的小房间里,除了感到头昏、晕眩,还有一点点飘飘然的感觉。其实艺术创作,有时候也是人与人互动的过程。有很多种类型的艺术,都是要观众参与其中才能使这件作品圆满地完成。
