The MIT program in art, culture and technology presents Dronological: The Art and Science of Unmanned Systems – A Tactical Transect across a Complex Techno-Social Domain by Marko Peljhan on Monday, September 22nd at 7PM in the Bartos Theater (E15-070). Unmanned aircraft systems have recently been rediscovered due to their use in the so-called “war on terror,” but are an invention more than 100 years old. The lecture will explore the histories and interconnectedness of these systems with geopolitical, scientific, techno-social, tactical media and conceptual contexts. It will also present cases of their real and imagined appearances, uses, and disappearances in order to track the potential future vectors of utilization and concurrent reflection. The lecture is free and open to the public.
