Revealing the Drone

Our project, Under the Shadow of the Drone by James Bridle, has been raising awareness about the use of drones in contemporary warfare, across the UK. Here's a round-up of some recent coverage.

Unmanned Aerial Ecologies: proto-drones, airspace and canaries in the mine

I recently gave a talk about the use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, in tactical media art. The intention was to place the work Lighthouse is presenting at this year's Brighton Festival 2013 in a wider art historical context, and to acknowledge some of the significant interventions that artists working within media have made over the past 10-15 years.
