Eine ganz coole Idee von Katsu, der einen Quadcopter mit einer Spraycan bestückt hat und diese fliegen lässt. So wirklich sinnvolle Bilder kommen dabei noch nicht raus, aber allein die Idee ist schon mal sehr viel Wert, wie ich finde. Mal gespannt, wie sich die Technik diesbezüglich noch entwickelt.
A lot of my work comes out of demonstrating and experimenting with different technologies for creative use. Basically, drones have lowered in cost enough that they are attainable, so I got my hands on some DJI Phantom 2s, and I have been experimenting with the idea of using drones to accomplish the same things that drones are beginning to be used for in broader society, but in this case for crime, vandalism, art. I really want to look into the way that a person and a drone could connect. I thought, ‘I could go out into the city and spray paint using a drone wherever I wanted to, in basically unreachable spots and in unusable areas.’
I also had a desire to make a series of paintings that would begin to express what happens when technology begins to collaborate in artistic creation and disruption. I started to collaborate with some developers and hardware people that I’m friends with, and we started working with Arduinos and 3-D printing, and basically raced to create this prototype remote sprayer that works with a drone.
