DRONE draws on research into the physical dynamics of insect flight and behaviour to offer a multi-sensorial installation informed by the integration of video projection with live immersive sound. The five minute looping video is produced by merging images appropriated from scientific experiments documenting the wing beat patterns of live bees with documentation of their robotic counterparts that are currently being developed by micro robotics labs in the US and Japan.
