Welcome

Welcome to the Project Daedalus Toolkit, a resource for artists, curators, and producers to help realize projects that use and interrogate drones (also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, and quadcopters) for creative purposes.

Here you’ll find a QUICK START guide to understanding drone types and uses; an INSPIRE ME area with case studies and examples of drone art in action; a HISTORY & CONTEXT area featuring examples of drones throughout history and in sci-fi, as well as insights into current drone development and inclusivity; and a CREATIVE PRODUCTION area with technical and legal information to help you produce and evaluate your own drone art projects.

Produced by Abandon Normal Devices and the University of Salford with technology partner
Marshmallow Laser Feast, Project Daedalus aims to share knowledge and inspire drone pioneers around the world. Let us know how you use our resources – we’d love to feature your project on our site.
