‘Dronestagram’ Filters Satellite Photos of US Drone Strikes for Your Social Feeds

12th November 2012

Dronestagram is the latest project from renowned “new aesthetic” pioneer James Bridle, an Instagram feed which posts satellite images corresponding to US drone strikes in the Middle-East and Asia. Much like Josh Begley’s Drones+, the Apple-banned smartphone app which sends alerts whenever drone strikes are reported, Bridle says Dronestagram is a way of “making these locations just a little bit more visible, a little closer. A little more real.”

Not coming soon: An equivalent app that tracks jihadist suicide bombings, honor killings, and Jew-beatings. Because, as we all know, the real problem is Islamophobia.
