Hypnothesis was a live performance that took place during Milton’s MFA thesis presentation at the Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery at UBC, Vancouver. Working with a hypno-therapist for a series of months leading up to her thesis defence, Milton attempted to develop the ability to be hypnotized on queue, allowing herself to dislocate from her present time and space and enter the psyche of past or fictional selves while delivering a thesis that explored performative ruptures in temporality and identity.
