HYSTERESIS intimately weaves a transformative fabric between Robert Seidels' projections of abstract drawings and the vigorous choreography of queer performer Tsuki. Using machine learning to mediate these lagged re-presentations, the film intentionally corrupts the AI's strategies to unveil a frenetic, delicate, flamboyant visual language of the hysteria and hysteresis in this historical moment.
