Fri. Oct. 4th: Re:Constructing Evidence

Join us for a walkthrough of the current Boston Cyberarts Gallery exhibit, Re:Constructing Evidence, before the opening reception.

Re:Constructing Evidence explores the role of evidence and practices of evidence construction — both physical and digital — in public controversies and civic life. The exhibition features four case studies focused on climate change, waste management, assumptions in data analytics, and the construction of breaking news narratives. Rooted in discourses of architecture, journalism, media art and environmental humanities, these projects investigate the constructed nature of evidence — construction not as an arbitrary process, but as a form of collective sensemaking.

This exhibit includes works by Jennifer Gradecki and Derek Curry, Meg Heckman, Dietmar Offenhuber, and Ang Li.

When: Friday, October 4th, 5:00pm
Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St., Jamaica Plain, MA (next to the Green Street Station)
Presenter: Dietmar Offenhuber
