The Center of Photography Geneva propose on the Plaine de Plainpalais a version of “Drone Shadow”, an open project initiated by artist James Bridle, whose work “London Surveillance Cameras” is also visible in the exhibition Caméra(Auto)Contrôle (until July 31).
A guided tour of the exhibition by Joerg Bader, director of the CPG et co-curator will be concluded by a visit of the Drone Shadow on location.
“The Drone Shadow is not just a picture of a drone. It is a diagram of a political system.” James Bridle.
James Bridle is an author, publisher, and technology expert. His work stands at the intersection of literature, culture, and networks. The Drone Shadows are a series of installations that consist in 1:1-scale outlines of drones that transpose both the physical reality and the apparent invisibility of these unmanned aircraft. First produced in London in 2012, this piece has since been reiterated in differing forms around the world. The artist himself provides a guide encouraging anyone who might be interested to create other silhouettes.
