A music video for Aurora’s single “Winter Bird” that weaves the musician into a cocoon using a swarm of drones –– a world’s first with the technology. 

I came up with the concept for the video, drawing inspiration from Aurora's interest in metamorphosis and recent drone research into architectural swarm fabrication. Working with Carnegie Mellon University’s Robust Adaptive Systems Lab, we brought the idea to life in the same space as the Mars rover.
