Characterising drone vision as an emerging asymmetric system of being seen and not seeing, the paper explores how drone vision is part of an expanded governmental surveillance of people, killing at a distance and an insurgent strategy of recognition, solidarity and affiliation across time and place. Drawing on these multiple uses of drone technology the paper will present the curated research project Drone Vision, a collaborative initiative between the cities Gothenburg, Lahore and Nicosia – and present some preliminary thoughts on how drone technology might be used as an infrastructure of protest that re-orientates understandings of political culture and the theorisation of photography.
