Hypnotic Chamber

New-Territories / R&Sie(n)

Artwork Details

Enter this organic, slime-mold-like space, and a voice speaks to you in soothing tones, releasing tension from body and mind, and luring you into an hypnotic state that dissolves the boundaries between self and surroundings. In the past, hypnotism was sometimes employed as a means to depart temporarily from stubborn social realities, and imagine new ways of living. Architects New-Territories/R&Sie(n) engage in speculative activities, traversing myriad fields from bioengineering to robotics to explore the connections between science, the environment, and humans.
