The project was named after the social theory Panopticon originally developed by French philosopher Michel Foucault in his book Discipline and Punish. The >Panopticon< refers to an experimental laboratory of power in which behavior could be modified, and Foucault viewed the Panopticon as a symbol of the repressive, disciplinary society of surveillance. Once when we were institutionalized we always have a feeling that we are observed and that we have to behave by certain patterns. I took photographs of abandoned institutions that are parabolically representing abandoned individuals from the institutional system.
