If unmanned drones and systems are being used to kill and destruct places and people in war remotely, why aren't drones being used to create and build creatively? In Black Hawk Paint, the experimental series uses a computer vision tracking systems based on a grid of coordinate points which the artist then uses to create one of a kind paintings with the drone as a brush. The drones paint abstract art onto a canvas laid horizontally on the gallery floor over the period of the work.
Part performance piece, part political statement, it hopes to create feelings of conflict within the viewer; a potentially uncomfortable romance of technology and power. Balancing a clean justified war juxtaposed to the literal display of chaos on the floor.

Started in 2007/2008 and continuing as an onging experimental painting technique, Black Hawk Paint utlizies drone as a means for creative application. The drones paint completely unique abstract art onto a canvas laid horizontally on the gallery floor over the period of the work. Each painting takes anywhere from an hour to eight to create.
Part performance piece, part political statement, it hopes to create feelings of conflict within the viewer; a romance of drone technology and creative expression.
