Lighthouse can now disclose the location for Under the Shadow of the Drone, James Bridle’s outdoor drawing of a drone aircraft, as used by militaries around the world.. This May as part of Brighton Festival 2013 his one-to-one rendering of a Reaper drone will incur into the everyday lives of residents on Brighton’s seafront Madeira Drive.

Under the Shadow of the Drone is designed to encourage people to imagine a military drone making a sudden appearance into the airspace of their own city and to confront the reality of what it might be like to experience a bombing raid carried out by a drone aircraft on their own community.

James Bridle strives to make these unseen, distant, destructive weapons more visible. Under the Shadow of the Drone brings the drone to the streets of Brighton.

Dates: 4 – 26 May 2013

Location: 5 minutes/500 metres walk east from The Brighton Wheel on Marine Parade, towards Yellowave Beach Sports Venue. And then look down to Madeira Drive.
Longitude/latitude of the Drone site: 50.818463, -0.12926
