Net//Work Exhibition: Laura Andreato

Hypnosis for detachment or fall - Hipnose para confiança e ascensão

Hypnosis for detachment or fall - _Hipnose para confiança e ascensão_ is a video hosted on the Youtube video platform that presents a reinterpretation of a hypnosis session conducted by two voices: one speaks in English and another translates the session into Portuguese. In the background, we hear relaxing music while we see the image of a moving flame looping across the screen. During the video, it is possible to suspect that, in some parts, what the translator says in Portuguese is not the translation of what is being said in English. In this way, two simultaneous and dissident narrations are presented: the English speaker tries to induce the hypnotized person to give up control and the translator encourages those who hear her in Portuguese to take it.

Hypnosis for detachment or fall - _Hipnose para confiança e ascensão_ É um vídeo hospedado na plataforma de vídeos Youtube que apresenta uma reinterpretação de uma sessão de hipnose conduzida por duas vozes: uma que fala em inglês e outra que traduz a sessão para o português. Ao fundo, ouvimos uma música relaxante enquanto vemos a imagem de uma chama em movimento em looping na tela. No decorrer do vídeo é possível suspeitar que, em algumas partes, o que a tradutora fala em português não é a tradução do que está sendo dito em inglês. Desta forma, apresentam-se duas narrações simultâneas e dissidentes: quem fala inglês tenta induzir o hipnotizado a deixar o controle e a tradutora estimula quem a ouve em português a tomá-lo.
