The Drone Project
A Special Topic Workshop Series
September 2015

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 engage drones of the latter category—small quadcopters—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 month-long project will consist of weekly lecture-discussions and collaborative brainstorming sessions alternating with weekend workshops. The resources and expertise of InterAccess will be made available throughout the duration of The Drone Project to facilitate hacking the function or intention of the drones. 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.

Dates: Thursdays and Saturdays, September 10, 12, 17, 19, 24 & 26
Time: Thursdays 7-10pm; Saturdays 10am - 4pm
Registration Fee:  $250
Who Should Participate? Those interested in surveillance and counter-surveillance discourse; new media art; media theory; and artists and designers of all disciplines.
