Colombia – Spain / 2020 / 6’
Dora Sena, Senator of the Colombian Republic, is a fictional character created by an artificial intelligence system from 1479 bills that are on hold on the Senate’s webpage between 2013 and 2020. Aiming to speed up the legislative processes, Dora Sena automatically generates new bills, in this case, related to the Covid-19 quarantine. In them, the use of swimming pools is lawed, for example, as well as games and hobbies, and animals are protected during the pandemic. The laws are mixed with recorded images before the health crisis that had already announced a dystopian reality. A stage of absurdity that gives rise to a thought-provoking space for a time in which governments, not a few times, went out of their minds.
