Drone Art

A BBC interview with James Bridle, of Dronestegram fame. He talks about visualizing drones in London and Washington streets. He makes the point that many of our contemporary technologies are “invisible” – and hidden from public discussion and political debate.

Using all the tools available to him, from Google Maps to social media platforms, Bridle explores technology’s effect on its users and urges his audience to have an effect on technology.

Bridle says he is both an artist and an activist, and he hopes his work calls into question our sometimes blind reliance on technological systems with which we come into contact every day.
