Finn Holtz
Panopticon in the Digital Age

This project is exploring early internet art culture, social media through the lens of Michel Foucault’s panopticon, the “ideal and efficient prison”.

This project by Finn Holtz is a research oriented work in progress, exploring the parallels between Michel Foucault’s concept of the panopticon, early internet art and current social media. They hope to understand how we have all become willing participants in constant surveillance, and how it affects marginalized communities.
