 The morning before going to the exhibition, I just read an article: What does it feel like to kill someone? There was 
an American solider who took part in the war said: "I'd been there so long I'd stopped caring about death. I wasn't
afraid and just accepted everything. But when I realized I'd completely and utterly obliterated a human being from
existence, it was absolute mental torture; it made the possibility of getting killed there very real again.”


Isao Hashimoto: "This piece of work is a bird's eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world."


Interview: Improving Reality 2014 - Susan Schuppli Susan Schuppli - 'Secrecy and Imagined Truths'

Through a series of case studies, Forensic Architecture’s Susan Schuppli asks if imagination is the very condition by which secrecy gains its traction and political agency. How do we document devastation and attacks when there is nothing left but rubble and memory? How do we reveal the devastation of drone attacks when evidence is controlled and concealed by the state, and obscured from UN investigation? Schuppli examines how through the forensic analysis of images, from selfies to satellite imagery, we can decode and reconstruct past events and communicate the reality of drone warfare upon the Middle East.
