City Surveillance: A Drones Eye View

Our Drone Future explores the technology, capability, and purpose of drones, as their presence becomes an increasingly pervasive reality in the skies of tomorrow. Eventually, I would like to use this representation method as a means to illustrate the city as a workplace, a story within my own project showing a view of london being monitored by government led drones contrasted by the ‘pet’ diy drones that will follow the city workers which I think could be quite exciting. I also like the glitchy representation and transitions used inthe video, which I would like to translate into my own work.

Cornell describes the film’s “story” as follows:

“In the near future, cities use semi-autonomous drones for urban security. Human officers monitor drone feeds remotely, and data reports are displayed with a detailed HUD and communicated via a simulated human voice (designed to mitigate discomfort with sentient drone technology). While the drones operate independently, they are “guided” by the human monitors, who can suggest alternate mission plans and ask questions.”
