Forensic Architecture- Data against Devilry

Short thesis

Forensic Architecture is an independent research agency that undertakes historical and theoretical examinations of the history and present in articulating notions of public truth.

Description

In recent years, the group Forensic Architecture began using novel research methods to undertake a series of investigations into human rights abuses. The group uses architecture as an optical device to investigate armed conflicts and environmental destruction, as well as to cross-reference a variety of evidence sources, such as new media, remote sensing, material analysis, witness testimony, and crowd-sourcing. 

In this talk, Eyal Weizman provides an in-depth introduction to the history, practice, assumptions, potentials, and double binds of this practice.
