SITU Research presents reconstruction methodologies to KSU’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative

February 4th 2021

Since the late spring, SITU Research has been conducting visual investigations of protests from across the United States. This growing library of examples documents the breadth and depth of police violence and excessive use of force against protesters in its systemic context. The work leverages the extensive, publicly available, citizen documentation of each event and merges it with digital reconstruction techniques to isolate and analyze key interactions between law enforcement and civilians from multiple perspectives and crucial spatial contexts.

This presentation will feature how these reconstructions serve as vehicles for accountability in the presentation of two cases: evidentiary material in a lawsuit against the Portland Police Bureau, and as an advocacy tool in a report against the New York Police Department.
