Apache Pilot is a mercenary piece of art that can be bought but never truly owned. Once photographed the Apache Pilot self posts itself online for sale to the highest bidder automating payment and delivery between the previous owner and the winning bidder.
Exploring the duality of living in a world immersed in technology, Apache pilot questions the increasingly blurred boundaries we have between our virtual and physical actions and the shift in accountability or emotional attachment this buffer of technology allows us.
Below is the image taken of the Apache Pilot before it was stolen. For the touring show a miniature 3D printout of the piece has been made which can be viewed in the Apache Pilot production blog below. When a viewer scans the miniature versions QR code it tweets ‘Missing In Action’ from the viewers twitter account and links to this final image of Apache Pilot.
