Reverie, on the Liberation from Work is a two-chapter guided hypnosis exercise aimed at deeply relaxing your body and mind, in preparation for a future without work. Reverie can be used as a tool to help you visualize what a life freed of work can be. The idea behind the sound piece is to tap into the realm of guided meditation, as a space that can prioritize the subject outside of direct ideological approach, and through engaging a dialogue with the inner self, stimulate the formation of an imaginary, a call to confabulate about possible futures.

The “misuse” of the hypnotic language can be seen as sabotage within the world and semantic of guided meditation, for the artist is a call to use “all the means necessary” to escape the tendency of the audience to push away radical narratives, often leading to an echo-chamber that may enhance the dystopic or totalitarian representation of the present. Reverie is not a space to escape the political realm of the present, it is a moment to revive our commitments, our agency, and our vision of the future, on self-organization on rights on productivity.
