THE INFINITELY COMPLEX ROPESKIPPING EXISTENCE

This essay is a companion piece to Isabel Lima's 2014 video installation Double Dutch: A Game.

From the conclusion:

"Double Dutch reflects upon the ethics of a system – asylum  – that is based upon making ethical contact with others into a definite principle of action. It reveals the ways that the structure of the asylum system complicates ethical contact, and the ways that those implicated in the system strive for it nonetheless."
