Forensic scientists are inventing systems and codes to transfer atrocities that emotionally affect us into objective representations, so denying their human perception for the need of their discipline. Changing sensitive images into neutral data, they reveal hidden information. 

Dry Your Eyes and Compute Her connects to this process with digital tools that simulate our human sensitivity in the form of mathematical representations. The work depicts a fictional murder story synthesised into images. These images are fluid and overloaded collages of investigation evidence, animated by satisfying mathematically calculated movements. The viewer is invited to investigate the content and speculate on the story it contains.
