     Therapy for Drones

A society merged with technology is marked by the human condition to be present everywhere, without physical presence. We can be present and detach our body from its physical presence, but what about our psyche and it ́s conditions of presence? We can combine the digital with the physical space, but can we combine the digital with the psychic space? Regarding drones, how would they perceive that space? And what would memory look like then? In "Therapy for Drones" Gernot Wieland uses different forms of storytelling, involving historical reports, personal memories, fictitious stories and scientific data.
