HYPNOSIS DISPLAY is an original live sound and 16mm film collaboration between experimental vocalist and musician Grouper (Liz Harris) and filmmaker Paul Clipson. Utilizing a slipstream of sound and imagery from the vast natural and urban landscapes of America, HYPNOSIS DISPLAY envelops viewers in deeply felt connections to landscape, environment, and place. With an attentive yet neutral eye, the film reflects on the American experience and what creates a sense of being at “home.” Neither image nor sound takes precedence—the two interact and intertwine with sophistication while preserving the raw sense of discovery that only field recordings and in-camera edited film rushes can yield.
