Forensic Architecture refers to the presentation of spatial analysis within contemporary legal and political forums. The project undertakes research that maps, images, and models sites of violence within the framework of international humanitarian law and human rights. Through its public activities it also situates forensic architecture within broader historical and theoretical contexts.

Forensic Oceanography (FO) is an investigation into the conditions that have caused the death of more than 1500 persons fleeing Libya across the Central Mediterranean in the Spring of 2011 (estimate by UNHCR). FO has so far provided its expertise in spatial analysis to a number of organisations and institutions who have conducting inquiries into these deaths. The project will further seek to devise ways in which a wide range of technologies and media might be used to document violations of human rights at sea and increase accountability in the future.

Recollection-Object | Laura U Marks
The recollection-object is an irreducibly material object that encodes collective memory. They can be in addition be variously considered fetishes, fossils, and transnational objects. What is important about all these objects-images is that they condense time within themselves, and that in excavating them we expand outward in time.
