Interactive show between humans and drones

Published Jun 12, 2023

The interaction between humans and drones was studied in the Reaktor Hall at KTH for two days.

This is the second year in a row that KTH, Stockholm University, and RISE are organising the "Drone Arena Challenge". This year, the focus was on the artistic side, where they wanted to study the interaction and movement between humans and drones to understand how to move with drones. The participants came from different disciplines in the arts and dance.

For two days in May, the participants were given everything they needed to interact with the drones and create a show, with a jury judging the final result.

"I had no idea there were so many creative, aesthetically evocative ways to dance with a drone! I am so impressed by the participants and their creative engagement," says Kristina Höök, Professor of Interaction Design and one of the researchers in the project.
