Meta Big Brother

FINALIST of Archi-Hack: Panopticon


Archi-Hack: Panopticon


Meta Big Brother: Ever-connected constellation of pixels


Name: Thomas Garofalo


Nationality: Italian

Institution / Company: Politecnico di Milano (University)

My project aims to represent the society of the future.

I believe that an online world is being created in parallel with the real world, in which people are building their lives. 

But the key element is that our online life is gradually replacing the real one.

We are always observed, our data are no longer our property but belong to dozens of multinational companies that know us more than ourselves.

They have the power to control us, giving life to Big Brother’s utopian idea that even if we can’t see it, it already exists among us.

The image I made represents our ever-connected and controlled society, but it also wants to represent a new idea of prison in which our online alteregos are blocked, which are stuck in a metaverse without privacy, just as we are every day.
