Drone brings together researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds whose work seeks to understand and represent the nature and extent of drone operations. The book investigates the relationship between drone technology, cultural production, and forms of surveillance and violence. It analyses and speculates upon how these technological developments affect life in cities.
Drone is the the first volume of Unmanned. Architecture and Security Series, a research and publishing project which examines architecture's role in the construction of the contemporary security regimes. The series discusses the consequences of the civilian appropriation of military technologies, and sets an agenda for design professionals to engage on a technological, cultural, and political level by putting forward forms of resistance.Contributors: Josh Begley, Dan Gettinger, Catherine Harwood, Arthur Holland Mitchel, Yael Messer, Ruben Pater, Francesca Recchia, Gilad Reich, Bradley Samuels Naureen Shah, Matthew Stadler, Jane Szita.
