Phase 2 of the DRONES AT HOME project takes the form of a two-day conference organized by the gallery@calit2.
The conference consists of a series of panels, screenings, and open sessions that explore issues related to the domestication of drones — whether in the context of warfare, science fiction, design, cultural studies, regulatory policy, or distributed and embedded intelligence. These various events, mobilizing conversations among artists, engineers, and other scientific and creative researchers, are geared toward the development of new research initiatives, analytical concepts, and experimental forms.
All gallery events are FREE and open to the public.
