Drones And Artistry: An Awesome Combination

Ars Electronica & Intel Present: DRONE 100 – Spaxels Over Linz






” “DRONE 100 – Spaxels over Linz” is the title of a spectacular quadcopter swarm performance that Ars Electronica and IntelTM are staging on September 10th. Weather permitting, 100 LED-studded Spaxels will put on a truly amazing display of aerial artistry above the Danube as the lead-in to this year’s Visualisierte Klangwolke extravaganza, “River of Knowledge.” Following their world-record-setting flight in Tornesch near Hamburg in late 2015, the 100-drone swarm has performed before a live audience only once. As the highlight of the Vivid Sydney Festival this past June, the quadcopters put on a show above the Australian metropolis’ harbor immediately adjacent to the world-famous Opera House. Thus, “DRONE 100 – Spaxels over Linz” will be the formation’s European premiere. “We’re delighted to be appearing in Linz again and to finally be able to demonstrate how far we’ve developed the SPAXELS since our very first appearance at the 2012 Klangwolke,” said Ars Electronica Futurelab Director Horst Hörtner.”
