  2. Prison Score was filmed with dancer Lisbeth Gruwez in Mechelen Prison, Belgium, for the biennial exhibition, Contour 2013. The former director of the Mechelen Prison collected hundreds of prison film posters and dozens decorate the walls of the prison. Laser produced a video montage of scenes from the films featured in these posters, specifically focusing on the hysteric movement of the prisoner archetype. She then filmed Gruwez performing a choreography based on this video montage. This final video of a dancer mimicking the frenzied movement of filmic prisoners is paired with Laser’s montage. For Contour 2013 the videos were installed alongside original film posters borrowed from the prison.
