Polyphonic murders: A holographic biography of trauma

HCA Polyphonic Murders

Scientists and artists come together to transform the scientific representation of violence into new forms of storytelling. Taking a series of historical violent deaths, the Polyphonic Murders project aims to transform the material remains of apparent brutality into a synesthetic gallery of knowledge and imagination. Filtered through new media technologies, the skeleton-archives of violence are re-assembled into three-dimensional re-enactments of action. The project is led by Elena Kranioti and the Edinburgh Unit for Forensic Anthropology and is funded by the Innovation Initiative Grants of the University of Edinburgh.
