Because human beings can be expected to face reality
Until now we have celebrated the achievements and advantages of new media without any reservation. But we have to realise step by step that they change people’s reality towards the unreal shadows of Plato’s Cave Allegory. We have let ourselves be seduced - by the addictive comfort and by the tempting possibilities of the new media. But what is the real cos of resources depleting cunsumption and unlimited possibilities of New Media?
More and more we feel threatened and more and more we leave safeguarding to clever computer programs that have access to every known and most notably unknown databoses and let them control every hidden corner.
The flying drone conveys this uneasy feeling of permanently being watched. Althought compared to a real drone, that is now to be used in civilian areas, it looks almost cute.
"She who dances with the drone" is an interactive dance performance between human being and machine which leads us to the question who take control? Let´s surprise you...
