Eyes in the world drones transform our perceptions and reveal our truths

Drones have altered the way we perceive the world. More importantly, drones have changed the way we view the world around us by determining the important events and how we create our shared “truth” of what happened.

Remotely controlled and equipped with sensors, drones unmanned by pilots have changed how we view conflicts as well as political protest, climate change, and the COVID-19 epidemic. In recent days, drone footage has shown the turmoil that has erupted in The US town of Kenosha after the murder of Jacob Blake and the devastation of the Beirut chemical blast and Tropical Laura.

Drone technology can blur perspectives foc, focus attention on surveillance, and permit people to observe everything from protests in public to areas that the pandemic has pushed away.

Drones can do much more than just’

However, drones are also data machines, collecting data about speed, altitude locations, speed, and so on.

Research I have conducted has shown that this mix of aerial imaging remote control, aerial imagery, and data generation changes the way we see the world. Drone imagery is able to blur the lines between domesticity and war, humans and machines.

Drones are becoming increasingly autonomous. Drone vision is a key element of the contemporary aesthetic of war. However, it’s also becoming more prominent in new ways of art, activism, and popular and promotional culture.

Images of war are typically seen through the eyes of Predator and Reaper drones. This makes witnessing conflict difficult, if not impossible. Police drones could record footage of protests and use it to defend the court against protesters.

However, at the same time, drone vision allows us to see state violence that could go unnoticed and expose the invisibly-operating information systems that control airspace.

The footage taken by drones shows open-cut mines, the Great Barrier Reef bleaching, and the new-found devastation from fires, droughts, and floods resulting in the consequences of the climate emergency unavoidable.

In the midst of Black Lives Matter protests continuing throughout America and across the world, drones have been able to witness confrontations between activists and police, making the aerial view more accessible than was previously reserved for media helicopters and police.

A brief background on drones.

Before drones were invented, the aerial view was restricted to satellites, helicopters, and air planes, and further back the hot balloons. Drones have made aerial views ubiquitous, appearing in everything from news articles to geographical surveys to wedding pictures.

The existence of military drones would not be possible today without a weapon designer who was also an avid glider fanatic. In the 1980s, Israeli aeronautical engineer Abraham Karem became obsessed with the idea of designing a remote-controlled aircraft and wanted to create it according to his own rules.

After moving to California and setting up his own business, Karem used his passion for glider design and design to develop an aircraft that could remain up in the sky for long periods, with just a lawn mower engine to keep it in the air and atop the sky: the Predator.
