Event description

Description

Workshop: Responding to critical questions raised by the politics and aesthetics of drone technologies, through creative practice.

Performing the Drone is an ongoing research project funded by the British Academy to explore the set of causes and effects that are put into motion by the drone image, and ascertain the function of the drone aesthetic. How do we draw value from the image and use this value to ascribe a look and feel to the image.

What will happen?

During the workshop participants will be introduced to a range of drone-based media to prompt a conversation about the knowledge that is communicated and interpreted through the vertical topographies of space revealed in the drone image. These materials will be gathered from a diverse range of resources including amateur drone photography, environmental agencies, artist practice, poetry, journalism, fiction and film. The conversation that evolves from discussion of these artefacts, will then be used in the collaborative development of creative outcomes that expose the genre and its associated visual language.

Who is this for?

Writers, film-makers, designers, artists, poets, activists, and anybody with a strong interest in understanding and discussing how the drone image functions as a critical device to make new connections with the mediated landscape, are invited to participate.

The workshop is also seeking to involve a wide range of research disciplines connected to the performance of the drone image (including Humanities, Art and Design, Sociology, Built Environment and Environmental Science).
