Mechanized apparatuses record millions of images every day, documenting people’s lives—often without their awareness or permission. The present age of drone reconnaissance and warfare, in particular, has emerged in concert with a state of pervasive surveillance in societies worldwide. In the newly-commissioned video Drone Wedding, artist collective Public Studio explores the perceptual implications of the automated imagery generated by drone technology.
