DRIFT x DON DIABLO
VENICE | BIENNALE
The first-ever DRIFT x Don Diablo indoor aerial drone performance Social Sacrifice (2022), mimicking the swarm behavior of a school of fish, during the opening of this year’s Venice Biennale.
A mesmerizing drone choreography that offers a poetic meditation on collective action and individual freedom, as well as how these change in the presence of external threats. The drones dance and battle one another. Each drone has its own light source, with the “predator drones” represented in red and the school of fish represented in white.
Visitors experienced the school of A.I. fish “swim” through the Church of San Lorenzo every evening at @tba21academy’s Ocean Space.
Commissioned by @aorist.art A next generation cultural institution in collaboration with Pace Gallery.
