V/A Hypnotism (2013)

www.va-hypnotism.com is a visual poem that compliments the cine-poem embedded on the page (see below). It highlights methods of control some men use to dominate and exploit women.

The website shows a digital collage of self-immolation survivors in Afghanistan surrounded by various canned meat products as search results from the google search ‘how to control women,’ and from the youtube search ‘hypnosis women,’ highlighting some of the most extreme cases of ‘ways to control women.’

*Once the site loads, the action of scrolling down gives the appearance that it is raining victims and canned meat.
