To experience the Un(re)solved AR installation, audiences may explore a “living quilt” wooden sculpture, which evokes the rings of a tree and the cyclical nature of violence. Within it, they can view quilts encased in sheets of etched glass, on which a row of names of victims of racist killings is inscribed. Using their phones, they may scan these names to hear each person’s story — but only once they speak the person’s name aloud three times.
The UN(RE)SOLVED installation is part of a multi-platform investigation that examines the FBI’s efforts to investigate over 100 racially motivated murders, while illuminating stories of those still seeking justice. Collaborating with PBS FRONTLINE, Ado Ato Pictures led the creative vision on the installation.
We invite you to explore Un(re)solved — a testimony to the lives of the individuals, and the multi-generational impact of their untimely, unjust loss.
