"The LEGAL ERRORIST – personified by the dancer Stephanie Cumming – is a creature that cannot stop crashing. The sudden over-powering by the “error”, the system error, engenders the creature's obsession. She commences with great relish through a series of transformations; that which hits upon the limits of a simple machine serves as a learning program for the LEGAL ERRORIST. Massively, like a mountain, the body of the “Errorist” falls to the floor and lands with an obstinate sound whose source seems remote from anything human. As though she were her own director, she speaks animatedly with numerous invisible colleagues. The voyeur's fatally bundled attention seems inverse to the body set against it, anamorphically distorted by the extremely wide-angled lens. The camera is a shrewd ally in the counterattack launched by the body on display."
