Studio Drift has recreated its flying sculpture Franchise Freedom at Kennedy Space Center, programming 300 drones to perform a routine marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission launch.
The Amsterdam-based studio headed by artists Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta adapted the performative artwork to work in time with a performance by British rock band Duran Duran.
The one-time-only custom edition of Franchise Freedom was developed to celebrate the launch of Apollo 11, which landed commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin on the moon on 20 July 1969.
The evening concert was held in the Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Merritt Island, Florida.
