Reuben Wu, Chicago-based artist and member of the electronic music band Ladytron, is currently exploring interesting ways technology can be used for innovative creative expression. Reuben has long wanted to test drone technology to create lighting effects for his imagery. Combining his Fiilex AL250 and 3DR Solo drone Phase One XF camera system, Reuben photographs nocturnal landscapes and adds light using multiple exposures. His end project “Lux Noctis” is a visual diary of halo mountaintops and other awe-inspiring landscapes. Alongside his photography work, Reuben is also the synthesizer player for Ladytron, which was formed in 1999.
