Artist Reuben Wu is becoming known as the ‘drone artist‘, a moniker we’re not sure should stick, but one that describes the tools with which much of his art is created. In his latest series, Aeroglyphs, Wu uses drones with lighting attachments to create simple, geometric forms over bodies of water, thanks to long exposure photography.
The simple forms you see could so easily be created in Photoshop, but the fact that they’re made with flying objects make them so much more interesting. His choice of open bodies of water for the imagery makes for a clean, open canvas, and allows for the long exposure photography to capture the light reflections. We love the simplicity, and the physical nature of this art, despite it being only viewable through the camera’s lens. Via Colossal:
