Drift flies 300 drones above Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg | Dezeen

In this exclusive video produced by Dezeen, the artist collective Drift talks about its recent drone installation, which flew above the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg.

Called Breaking Waves, the kinetic installation employed a fleet of 300 illuminated drones programmed to move in a wave-like pattern around the Herzog & de Meuron-designed building.

The duo, made up of Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta, frequently create kinetic sculptures using innovative technology in their work.

“New tech comes very close to magic,” Nauta said. “That’s when you can engage an audience, you can open up their mind and plant an idea.”

“It’s not so much about the technology you work with – it’s about what you do with it,” Gordijn added.

“It’s about the light and about the movement and about how we speak to an audience.”
