“Escape from Panopticon”
This was inspired by Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon concept. In this artwork, the man realizes that he is working in a Panopticon jail as a white-collar worker and he wanted to escape from the “prison”. It is a corporate prison in his mind. He realizes that everything is organized by somebody and when he decides to escape he feels free.
I chose to hang the balloons from his ankle to represent shackles. The truth is he won’t really be completely free.
