Attempt to unveil a thought process....

Susan Hiller's, Sisters of Menon, (1973), provides us with a demonstration of automatic writing, a process often used by spiritualists, involving the writer not being aware of what the hand is producing. I thought about applying this trance state that often comes with the production of automatic writing, but struggled to find a way in which to induce this.

However, i continued to ask people to track their thought process relating to the given object.
I am excited about looking into ways of creating this more controlled atmosphere and surroundings, and will continue to looking into situationism as a theory for manipulating peoples feelings.
