Device of Prey

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), most commonly known as drones, are gaining significant importance in modern warfare.

No longer merely sci-fi, the arms race of the near future could lead to the definitive incorporation of artificial intelligence.

With this poster series, Jan Wojda raises questions on what the future could look like with autonomous weapon systems. Feared by a slow but significant process of dehumanisation and the world’s elevated hostility, Jan focuses the viewer’s attention on the inevitable outcomes of violence.
