22 April-21 May 2010
An exhibition of artworks investigating the duality of surveillance: watching
and being watched
Panopticon: Surveillance Explored questions living in a world where we are monitored
from birth until death, where we are watched for our protection whilst simultaneously
under suspicion, where we consume the images and events of other people’s
lives and where we expose our own lives for the scrutiny and voyeurism of others.
Alexandra Valy is showing "I
‘I see’ is a comment on the inherent uncertainty of life.
We go through our daily lives being recorded; data about us is being
compiled and analysed, used and fed back to us in a different form,
but information is no oracle and the knowledge of what we will become
is always out of grasp. And as we manoeuvre through the sea of information
that is thrust upon us we find ourselves still grappling with (or avoiding)
fundamental human questions.
