Forensics and Poetics: A context for ''Accident Music''

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

'Accident Music' is an evocative response to the NSW Police Forensic Photography Archive which is housed at the Justice Police Museum in Sydney. The author has been working with this collection for almost fifteen years, sensing evermore strongly that its meanings and emotions are endless even though they are also structured by many factors: the spatial and temporal patterns of Sydney; the rigors of Police procedures; the aesthetics of black white photography; the affordances of narrative; the power of dread, desire and memory pulsing within each investigator. 'Accident Music' tries to activate all these factors in order to explicate them a little, to bring them into the forensic light of critical reflection.
