Matthew Walker - MA Show

Modern surveillance has become an integral aspect of culture. The panopticon is the earliest form of mass surveillance. It allowed for perpetual visibility, which is the feeling of being watched when you not necessarily are.

‘The Panopticon’ project is inspired by my research into surveillance culture in the UK, looking at the beginning of surveillance and how it has altered the public perception of the government. My work is split into two components – the first, a sculpture made from slip-casted porcelain to create surveillance cameras, which represents the most symbolic form of surveillance in a realistic manner. The second component is a booklet which delves deeper into different forms of surveillance, combining illustrative and graphic techniques.
