Drones

DRONES is the second project in a series of collaborations between my friend, Michael Yap, and I under the alias Made By Friends. As a sequel to the Citi Bike data visualization, we we wanted to push the boundaries of the medium and construct an interesting narrative out of public data. We invited our friend and talented writer Zoe Mendelson to help craft that narrative.

Together we gathered hundreds of public military documents and public data together to create a visually stimulating and informative data narrative on the past, present, and likely future of military drone use.
