Facing the impossibility of finding more understandable bills for any citizen, and upon discovering that there were few proposals to deal with the health crisis caused by COVID, I decided to create a fictional character "DORA SENA", Senator of the Colombia’s Republic; made by an artificial intelligence system, which was trained with the 1479 bills, which I was able to download and systematize from the Senate's website between the periods 2013 to 2020. DORA SENA, automatically generates bills, using some basic inputs that allow it to generate specific projects related to the Pandemic. The digital project is complemented with images recorded before the pandemic, which denote somewhat dystopian and calm situations of our Bogota routines. DORA the senator wants to generate a space of reflection in the middle of the pandemic. Can a machine generate bills for dystopian situations?
