In this presentationAna Naomi de Sousa, journalist at Forensic Architecture, and Stefan Laxness, architect and project coordinator at Forensic Architecture, will show you some of the most mesmerising news reconstructions you have ever seen, and will make you reconsider how to use digital media to defend human rights.
Mixing social media, investigative journalism, 3D modelling and made-to-measure digital tools, Forensic Architecture has worked with companies such as Amnesty International to unveil the truth where journalists had previously failed.
Check out incredible investigations such as the reconstruction of Syrian's torture prison Saydnaya and Rafah's bombing, and come to the talk to meet two of the people behind such elaborate reconstructions!

About Westminster disLAB Presents…
Westminster disLAB Presents is a series of free encounters organised by the Digital and Interactive Storytelling LAB MA – a new MA that will start in September 2017.
If you are interested in digital journalism, interactive documentary, apps for social change, educational video games or just digital communication, this series of encounters is for you. The aim is to invite students and young media makers to join the conversation with practitioners, so that together we can start creating the digital stories of the future.
Westminster disLAB challenges the use of digital media to do exciting storytelling. It is about being creative and becoming the storytellers of the future. For this, it is important to be exposed to current practices, be inspired by great makers and dare to innovate ourselves.
By inviting successful digital storytellers to share their current projects and expertise in an informal setting, we hope to bridge the gap between industry and universities. Let’s start our future now.
