Ariel Caine is an artist and researcher currently living in London where he is a PhD candidate at the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths University and a researcher at Forensic Architecture. Utilising cutting edge computational photographic and photogrammetric processes in combination with analogue archival media, Ariel’s artistic practice and conceptual research explores the co-constitutive relations of state, religious nationalism and imaging technologies, seeking to both expose and challenge the ways in which the photographic apparatus is embedded in the logic of the construction of physical reality. Ariel’s works have been exhibited and collected internationally. Ariel is the Project Coordinator and lead researcher for the Ground Truth Project.
