William Bets

Pinturas, sim, pinturas, de William Betts coloca em evidência câmeras de vigilância na sociedade contemporânea. Vejam mais aqui. Do “we make money not art”:

“The series of the paintings is inspired of course by the current rise in surveillance practice. They also make a step back in time by referring to Michel Foucault’s essay Discipline & Punish and to the Panopticon, a proposal for a circular prison with an unseen guard watching from a center tower, designed by late XVIIIth century philosopher Jeremy Bentham.

What makes his work unique is not the content but the technique. Betts’ paintings both reinvigorates the traditional art discipline and draws on his mastering of software technology.”
