There is a grim austerity to Forensic Architecture (FA)’s Investigation #10: Drone Strike in Miranshah installation, keeping with the discomforting nature of FA’s core mission: using architectural software and sensibilities to investigate human rights violations. Based on available data, FA reconstructed a digital shrapnel map of a drone strike -- then, in Mexico City in 2016, they turned this mapping into a physical model for onlookers to contemplate. The antithesis of artistic escapism, FA forces us to engage with what founding director Eyal Weizman calls a “dark epistemology of a post-truth media environment.” Their works seek to shine an uneasy spotlight on incidents and facts that media sources have chosen to distort or gloss over, such as a nearby child detention center being used by I.C.E. right here in South Florida.
