Drone surveillance in modern warfare,that is, the use of unmanned planes operated by pilots on the ground is of paramount significance to Omer Fast. Focusing a single cinematic video work of Fasts, 5,000 Feet is the Best 2011, the publication bridges the gap between a critical reader and an artist s book. Produced to accompany two solo exhibitions in Oslo and Toronto, it includes texts from art historians Liz Kotz and T. J.

An email thread between practitioners active in different fields opens the conversation into a forum on politics, ethics, aesthetics, and human experience.
