In cooperating with the group of lawyers and activists [SI] supported the investigation by making the circumstances around the fire visible. Contributing renderings of the spatial arrangements that led to the fire as well as the manipulation of the line of responsibility after the fire had occurred. The role of design was, by using renderings, photomontages and haptic models, to translate those selected elements of the court case and make aspects tangible and discussable in other forums.Images and models aimed at clarifying the risk being taken into account by those facilitating the construction at workers’ dispense and ultimately leading to eleven people dying. The title “Labor Murder” refers to fatal workplace accidents that could be prevented by following legally regulated safety rules. In Turkey, around 2,000 people die of work-related accidents each year.
