Commons, drones, gifs
An online commission for UpProjects.com, building and evolving over eight weeks. Drone footage from flights above commons across London was added and played concurrently with spoken monologues reflecting on the concept of the common.
The spoken text questions our ability to conceive of the commons in a post capitalist age, whilst proposing a collective healing action through movement and participation. In utilising a kind of common airspace up to 122m above the common, the drone footage shows not only the physical features of the land and trees and their relationship to the built environment, but questions the relationship between public/private ownership, rights, privacy and collectivity.
