Ooh, would you look at that. They’re teeny, tiny drones! Specifically, the MQ-1 Predator, the RQ-170 Sentinel, and the RQ-4 Global Hawk — all currently in use by the U.S. government, Hyperallergic points out.
Ladies and getns — this is the UAV Identification Kit 001, complete with tiny, teeny people for accurate scale so you can learn what UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) might look like from the sky. Not, it’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. It’s not Supermensch and it could fucking kill you.
This very nifty new art project was created by James Bridle, the coiner of the New Aesthetic (who reads ANIMAL, what’s up?). He’s really into drones lately, as evidenced by his Under the Shadow of the Drone installation of life-sized white-silhouettes of drones in the streets and the notorious Dronestagram, posting drone strike imagery through Instagram in real time. Chills? Yeah. Chills.
