COLD CASES - 31-05-2016

The basic premise for this project on the theme of fiction was develop a project with a document focused style. I used the city of Brighton as the setting for my project in order to create a new fictional visual history to it.

Instead of investigating the real dark side of the city, I wanted to create a fictional story of my own. I developed a set of case files pertaining to fictional crimes that happened within the jurisdiction of Sussex Police. I put together a series of five case files containing detailed documents such as coroner’s, fingerprint and scene reports. As well as this I included photographs of the scenes along with images of the fabricated evidence and linked correspondence.
