In the final Power and Vision event for Michaelmas 2017 we are screening video testimonies of effects drone strikes. The videos are compiled by Forensic Architecture, an independent research agency providing evidence for international prosecution teams, political organisations, NGOs, and international institutions like the UN. Their interdisciplinary team of investigators includes architects, scholars, artists, filmmakers, coders, investigative journalists, archaeologists, lawyers, and scientists. The screening of the testimonies is followed by a Skype Q&A with Christina Varvia, who is an architect and the Research Coordinator at FA.

On Christina Varvia: “Christina Varvia is an architect, researcher and the Research Coordinator at Forensic Architecture. She graduated from the Architectural Association with a previous degree from Westminster University. Her previous research includes studies on digital media and memory as well as the perception of the physical environment through scanning and imaging technologies, research that she deploys through time-based media. After working in architectural practice, Christina joined Forensic Architecture in 2014, where she developed methodologies and undertook video analysis that led to the Rafah: Black Friday report, unpacking one day of the war in Gaza, 2014. She has since coordinated the Saydnaya project, Reporting from the Front, and many other projects and exhibitions.”
