Half-cut

Nikolai Nekh

Curator: Sandra Vieira Jürgens | Session: Future Present

Half-cut (Meio Corte) is a wondering process about the efficiency of public transport strikes in Portugal during the so-called period of the financial crisis.

Taking some issues to a certain degree of absurdity, another way of reclaiming work conditions is proposed. However, there is no way to go through it empirically, this struggle happens in a sound/image juxtaposition. Due to these conditions, new problems arise: the sound and the text start to shape the content of the image. The outcome of this process is reflected in a short sequence of a passing train.
