Nightmare inductions uses self-hypnosis and trance induction techniques to provide an audience with a guided visualization of nightmares. To accomplish this we use a combination of binaural beats and brainwave entrainment video patterns, along with self-hypnosis induction scripts, sometimes read live, other times pre-recorded. The project challenges the imaginative willingness of the audience while exploring the creative possibilities for induction-based artworks. We think of induction as a second-order thought experiment -- not simply an idea contemplated passively in one's own mind, but an experience implanted by visualization and self-hypnosis techniques. To date we have completed three nightmares: the dream of having one's teeth fall out; the dream of falling, and; the dream of forgetting something important.
