The Drone Project
Special Topic Workshop Series: The Drone Project
Drones have a complex image, not least due to the fissure between drones as surveillance and weapons, and drones as recreation and art. The Drone Project at InterAccess will address the use of drones as tools of creative investigation. This may include using drones to make art, using drones as art, and using drones as the subject of art.
This 3-week project will consist of weekly lecture-discussions from esteemed experts, academics and researchers including Scott Sorli (Academic), Frank Sedlar (Engineer), Jayne Wilkinson (Director, Prefix ICA), David Oppenheim (Producer, National Film Board of Canada), and Claudette Lauzon (Assistant Professor, OCADU). The resources and expertise of InterAccess will be made available throughout the duration of The Drone Project to facilitate artworks inspired by the lectures. As McKenzie Wark writes, "Hackers create the possibility of new things entering the world." This possibility of new things forms the basis of this intensive Special Topic workshop series.
