Session of Inducation, 19.30 min., 2013 from Evaldas Jansas on Vimeo.

During the course of the exhibition Lithuanian Art 2012: 18 Exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, the Los Angeles based artist Marcos Lutyens performed a hypnotic induction aimed at dematerialising the monument of Frank Zappa (erected by a community of artists in Vilnius in 1995). The project was made up of a targeted series of inductions that offered a pre-selected group of volunteers the experience of transformation and metamorphoses through hypnosis. Evaldas Jansas documented the inductions while simultaneously mixing video documentation of the exhibition and sound recorded from contact microphones and a special circuit for receiving ground signals placed on the Frank Zappa monument itself.
