Your Tool is My Resistance Too


Concept Statement

Found Objects (Stone, Soil, Organisms) from a village where an army and Local Militia were involved in rape charges, Arduino, Processing, High-Speed Microscopic Camera, Pipes, LED’s, DC Motor, Print on Paper, LED Screen

This machine uses a high-speed microscopic camera and forensic criminal sketch reconstruction algorithms to reconstruct portraits of state criminals from the earthly evidence at an undisclosed crime site. It observes patterns of pores and conducts pollen analysis of the evidence to gather data on the remains of state criminals found in rocks, pebbles, grass, pollen, and fungal spores. The work speculates how can forensic gaze be reversed to look back at regimes of power at political margins.
