AFTER THE LAW is a short movie where a tribunal of humans and objects is contaminated by an unknown accident that eroded speech and fractured the law. Through a toxic mutation of roles and shapes, evidences and gestures, the court's ability for deliberation colapses. Shot as a live performance, using a single camcorder, this system was designed as a cybernetic mechanism for haptic responses where a collective drive collides with a synthetic voice. The choral voices were recorded through hipnose-induced states, a broken voice that haunts a political paradox in a reversed bio-engineering. First film by this Portuguese artist, exploring a series of themes present in his work such as pre-language, animism and cybernetic systems.
