‟The law locks up the man or woman
who steals the goose off the common
But leaves the greater villain loose
Who steals the common from the goose.
The law demands that we atone

When we take things we do not own
But leaves the lords and ladies fine
Who take things that are yours and mine”

17th century Folk song against the system of English enclosures

This 2D digital hand-drawn animated video explores a judicial system that takes on the form of labyrinthine structures: The camera travels through the space in a loop and changes the perspective of the forms in space. The staircases lead back onto themselves, a Möbius strip with neither a start nor an end point in which one can get lost.
