The Camera Never Lies: Challenging images through The Incite Project

Joining the Sainsbury Centre’s six-month long investigation into What is Truth? is a dynamic exhibition re-evaluating the most iconic images of the past 100 years.

In Event of Moon Disaster

An Emmy Award-winning interactive experience that is a deep dive into misinformation and conspiracy. Using AI to tell an alternative history, the show brings to light how an event as influential as the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing could be manipulated, and how doubt can be cast on even the most well-known of facts.
