US army drones are controlled by teams of two (one pilot and one “sensor operator”), situated miles from conflict zones at a base in Nevada. He became fascinated by drones as early as 2003. His 2010 video Drone Vision exploits a glitch and security flaw in the way the images were transferred from the drones to the US-based pilot via unencrypted satellite uplinks. “We’re moving away from the notion of the soldier as the heroic character.
