David Houston Jones: Visual Culture and the Forensic


17-03-2023 • 1 hr 4 mins

Visual Culture and the Forensic bridges practices conventionally understood as forensic, such as crime scene investigation, and the broader field of activity which the forensic now designates, for example, in performance and installation art, or photography. David Houston Jones speaks to Pierre d’Alancaisez about the evidentiary and forensic burden of art and photography, the artifice of crime imaging, the visual traces of data, and the ontology of data and objects.

David Houston Jones is Professor of French and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter.
