Roland Graf – Pipa Vista – Austria/Brazil/United States

An urban intervention and workshop series that explores the relationship between surveillance technology and the built environment. By transforming traditional kites into camera-equipped drones, the project enables participants to experience the city from a new perspective, capturing fleeting moments from above. Drifting in the wind and connected to the operator by a string, the camera kites show the tension between control and chaos, creating fanatically moving images of the urban landscape.


Founded in 1997, Assocreation is an artist collective based in Vienna (AU) and Ann Arbor (US). Its members work on a wide range of interactive installations and urban interventions. The group is best known for its award-winning interactive installations that often manipulate the ground the public walks on.
