PANOPTES

Correspondence with Transport for London, 2019.

Continuing my study of social triggers and how they effect us on a subliminal level, I became interested in the audio announcements that play in the London tube and rail stations. The frequency with which they play, the overbearing volume levels and the message of paranoia seemed to be targeting and enhancing peoples sense of distrust and fear. The idea of 'something that doesn't look right', projects a broad concept of morality in peoples minds, what is right and wrong and what does it look, who does it look like. I decided to open up a correspondence with TFL using a fictional version of myself to try and understand the meaning of the message. The title of Panoptes refers to Argus, a many-eyed giant in Greek mythology.
