Eyal Weizman

'When we come to judge state violence we judge it against various measures of ethical calculations, ethical economies. The split-second empties the subject out of anything that is supposedly distinct about her/him and context. The defense in our cases reduces time to its indivisible pixel. Split-second is not a tenth of a second, a millisecond nor a microsecond, it is simply the shortest period of time when consciousness could not operate.'

By way of Forensic Architecture’s firm belief that “context exists in the fraction of a second”, in this podcast Eyal Weizman delves into cases like the Rodney King trial or the 2014 Israeli attack on Gaza to look at the terminology included in the agency’s lexicon and analyze its techniques, use of media, and energetic aesthetic approach.
