WATCH: A 'Mistletoe Drone' Descends On San Francisco
Most would agree: We don't usually think of drones as charming.
But two artists — George Zisiadis and Mustafa Khan — have produced a piece of performance art that mixes the unmanned aerial vehicle with a long-loved holiday tradition.
The artists propped a mistletoe on a Parrot AR Drone 2.0 and flew it over San Francisco's Union Square.
Zisiadis told The Bold Italic about the project:
"All my work is about playfully re-imagining the world around us," he says. "Drones have been causing all sorts of paranoia lately and I wanted to reframe them from being something scary and ominous to being fun and human. It's not about the technology, its about how we use it."
Here's the video. Enjoy!
