Description (in English): 

A short story told from from the perspective of a drone drifting across the planet. First person narration is interspersed with stills from the author's prior works and images from the various sources—including other creative works, documentaries, YouTube videos, and corporate promotional materials—all of which are shot from the perspective of a drone.

Pull Quotes: 

As I fly ever closer, the sky is filled with the fear and wonder of all possible futures. I might land, I might not. I drone on, endlessly and autonomously. I am your reach into the air and across the world. In the distance I see a truck driving through the desert. And in the light of god there is a flash. She was fifteen, and then she was gone.
