The Erroneous Perception
Inspired by Michel Foucault and his assessment of the Panopticon, The Erroneous Perception revolts against 21st century surveillance and demands the right to anonymity. In an attempt to reflect the intrusive nature of surveillance technologies, this body of work pinpoints the shocking realities of being watched and breaks the barriers between privacy and publicity. By navigating a variety of global live streaming cameras, the images in this series expose microcosmic worlds which intend to shock and cause discomfort to the viewer. Constructed and staged photographs are also integrated to emphasise just one question: who is actually watching? By merging these images together, my work maintains an unsettling presence reminding the viewer that even now their actions are being watched.
