PUBLIC STUDIO: DRONE WEDDING

Image caption: Public Studio, Drone Wedding, 2014, stills from video installation.


Mechanized apparatuses visually record millions of images every day, documenting people’s lives often without their awareness or permission. While surveillance has existed for some time, improved technology has led to greater consequences: targeted killing, collateral damage and the death of privacy. A catastrophic sequence of events often begins with a single image. In their ongoing investigation of violence hidden in the everyday, Toronto artist collective Public Studio (Elle Flanders and Tamira Sawatzky, with sound artist Anna Friz) uses drone technology to provoke conversations about surveillance and warfare.
