"The Confession Tapes" & Kelly Loudenberg on Dr. Phil
Exhibit A is an documentary series exploring controversial criminal cases through the lens of questionable forensic science, which is often far less scientific than it appears. Each episode delves into a particular forensic discipline and reveals how many of the techniques popularized in true crime shows and detective fiction are too good to be true.
Eddie is home for Christmas. After he and his well-to-do friend Christian are unable to procure alcohol, they head to the ramshackle apartment of Eddie’s hard drinking dad, John, in order to get some drinks. John provides for the boys, under the pretense that he is going to teach them “how to drink.” As the night goes on, and the drinking continues, things get wilder, weirder, and more dangerous.
This documentary series examines false confessions. New Season premiering on Netflix Spring 2019.

With materials and actual props used by The Reality Based Training Association, I assembled a living space that can completely absorb bullets.
This bullet-absorbent still life, constructed of foam furniture, is a replica of a replica. The RBTA, an advocacy group, proposes that these foam simulations are the best way to prepare officers for shooter scenarios, arguing that they allow “the brain and body to process the experience as if it were actually occurring.”
