The Graffiti Drone

tedlistens (1697590) writes "KATSU is known for his adventurous and speculative vandalism, but his new project is not fake or hypothetical, though it does elevate his work to new heights. He has developed a system to attach a spray can to a quadcopter, creating one of the world's first graffiti drones. The drone is capable of spraying canvases or walls hundreds of feet high, granting the artist access to spaces that were previously inaccessible. At the Silicon Valley Contemporary art fair, which opened Thursday, KATSU is showing a series of drone-painted canvasses—and preparing to take the drone out on the town. "There are a lot of disadvantages to drones, you know. It’s not like, ‘oh, I’ll slip off the edge of this bridge and die’," he tells the Center for the Study of the Drone at Motherboard, which also has a video. "Its like, ‘I might have the drone drift off and I might kill someone.’""
