Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – drones – have become an everyday feature of contemporary military activity, replacing humans in reconnaissance flights, small-scale combat missions and covert operations. George Barber’s three video projections, an array of domestic objects and numerous washing lines, The Freestone Drone follows a mission from the point of view of the machine. The video combines found and made footage to produce an uneasy, seductive montage, anchored on the drone’s private thoughts.
