This event has ended.

First Person View is an art show for drones. As drones become popular as a tool for photography and cinematography among civilians, the human relationship to the drone’s perspective is increasingly a subject of interest. This exhibition incorporates the drone’s point of view as a new way of looking– a scale and orientation in which the body is no longer the limiting force. Consumer drones are manufactured primarily as toys, and flying them presents an amusing challenge. Originally conceived of as a drone obstacle course, this exhibition presents artworks not so much as piloting obstacles, but visual targets. Visitors will use the drone’s real-time vision to navigate throughout the space, encountering artworks in an unusual way. As the most comprehensive viewer of the exhibition, the drone-cam will capture images that will then be printed and amassed as a counterpart to the show.
