Abstract / Description of output

This project is an innovative mixture of medical imaging and forensics with holography, animation, art and virtual reality. This alliance of art and science explores, presents and communicates the history of violence and the violence of history to diverse audiences. Anatomical detail provides the substrate for forensic analysis and interpretation while digital technologies and creative art nourish fictitious scenarios on unexplained historical crimes. The aesthetics of the virtual world create an immersive environment for diverse audiences. The emotional, ethical and aesthetic impact of violence becomes a site of reflection, empathy, learning and performative imagination.
