‘Tractatus’ is a visual analysis of the event in which 23 ministries were nominated by the interim government that replaced that impeached the elected president Dilma Rousseff. On 12th May 2016, the ceremony in Brasilia was televised throughout the whole country. The live streaming was based on a wide-angle steady shot, in which you could see all the politicians together, and at the moment of the document’s signature, the image shifted for a close-up shot, where only the signing hand of the politician was portrayed. The work makes a decoupage of the choreography and displays a colour pallet based on the skin tone of the politicians.
