The Fashion Police Drones, armed with custom fashion recognition algorithms, will track individuals based on audience-defined criteria for “fashion crimes”. Through this interactive experience, the work challenges conventional perspectives about drone and AI applications, sparking discussions about the evolving landscape of surveillance and the ethical use of AI-driven technologies in our contemporary world. ‘Fashion Police Drones’ aims to trigger the audience’s curiosity about the boundaries of surveillance, the potential consequences of automation in military application and law enforcement, and the societal implications of cultural profiling.
