“Drone Aviary” is a short film by “collaborative design practice” Superflux that explores the idea of drones as protagonists with their own unique perspectives. It showcases a number of different drones performing a number of different tasks while they quietly and not-so-quietly record their surroundings.
It explores a world where the ‘network’ begins to gain physical autonomy. Drones become protagonists, moving through the city, making decisions about the world and influencing our lives in often opaque yet profound ways.
The short film is part of a larger project–The Drone Aviary Project–that investigates “the social, political and cultural potential of drone technology as it enters civil space.”
