Hello world

"What does your safe place* look like?"

Hello world is an autonomous technological installation in which Maxime Arnould and a drone coexist. Welcome to a programmed world that responds to our emotions. Through this piece, Maxime Arnould confronts his fear of drones and their double identity of weapons of war and playthings, wondering "How can technology become a medium of projection and creation of new ecosystems?" In a crisis situation such as now, it seems important to review the surveillance tools that make up the contemporary landscape (at home or outside of it), as well as the available tools to fight back.

* A safe place can be a comfortable shelter, a place of protection or a reassuring space. In an activist context, it is designed for people who are oppressed and discriminated against, whether due to their gender, their origins, their sexual orientation, their political or religious ideologies. Within a group or alone, it allows each person to take the time to rest, to express themselves freely without being judged or having their experience denied, in a common quest for activist tools and perspectives.
