On the eve of the technological singularity LOST DRONES focuses on the possibilities of a more humane treatment of man´s exo-prothesis: the drone. The pressing issues of our time, when the machine learns to think, are faced here by the exemplary behavior of a person lingering in the frontier zone.

We ask:
Did mankind miss the crucial point of the growing self-awareness of artificial intelligence and does it therefore turn to wildlife?

"It might happen as well [...], that people are looking for [...] LOST DRONES." (Westfälische Nachrichten)
"An inspiring experience." (Die Fortunisten)
