Drone Alert Sutras
Drone Alert Sutras is a collaborative project of the BlueSky Committee (BSC), founded in 2014 by Nick Flynn and Sarah Sentilles as a daily practice. The process is simple: an alert (via the Metadata+ app, the Ephemeral app, or @dronestream) of a US drone attack somewhere in the world generates a prompt, which is sent (via email) to the other participants. The prompt always includes a seven-minute meditation on the alert, and then each participant is asked to create a one-minute video (using the 8mm app or whatever app you prefer) on a specific theme. All the videos are then uploaded to Vimeo as a living archive of a collective response to state-sanctioned violence.
