A second exhibit from the Science Gallery’s Hack the City event has gained the attention of the police.

The Loitering Theatre piece, by visual artist Nina McGowan and filmmaker and digital rights expert Caroline Campbell which:

uses customised helicopters (the AR.Drone) to fly beyond the normal street view to access and film previously inaccessible and unseen views of the city. The outcomes of these flights will be used to create a short film, which will be presented as part of the exhibition, along with the drones, maps and images of key sites.

The Gardaí paid a visit to the gallery and asked for footage of Áras an Uachtaráin and Mountjoy Prision to be excised.
