BLURB

Foucault got it partly right when he predicted a time when there would be “… no need for arms, physical violence, material constraints. Just a gaze. An inspecting gaze, which each individual under its weight will end by interiorizing to the point that he is his own overseer.” In such a space like Tiananmen Square, it can be easy to blend into the crowd, to get lost in the sea of tourists. But here, you are always under the watchful eye. The idea of video surveillance as a technological solution designed to solve the problems of surveillance in urban space has been prevalent for years. People under surveillance are to be seen but to never know when or by whom: under control but without physical intervention.. In ‘Panopticon’ you are your own voyeur, witnessing your actions as you commit them, gazing back with open eyes. [Margaret Johnson]
