Priest College and Quadcopter Drones: Studying the intersection between Art, Science, and Photography

Fall 2015

This fall, students in Priest College, “From Pixels to Picoseconds,” are studying the intersection between art, science, and photography. As part of the course, they have been flying camera-equipped quadcopter drones over St. Lawrence’s campus. Along the way, they’ve discussed the technological advancements that led to quadcopters, the artistic applications of their images, and the ethical issues involved in their use.
