PANOPTICON

PANOPTICON, 2013, line marker on canvas, 82″ diameter

Wherever we drive, we drive in the public world, normally subject to unobjectionable public observation. However, the current development of the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) will contain information on where we go, the routes we use and when we travel. Bentham’s 18th century idea design consisting of a circular structure with an ‘inspection house’ at its centre, for watchmen to watch; is visually channeled through the layering of line marker language.
