Holopticism Holopticism Presentation Transcript

  • What is holopticism?
  • First, let’s look at it’s opposite: panopticism.
  • Imagine a prison shaped like this...
  • Here are the prisoners,
  • and here is the warden.
  • Notice that the prisoners can’t see each other, line of site
  • but the guard can see the door to every cell.
  • This makes sense in a prison,
  • because you don’t want prisoners to coordinate their actions
  • independently of the warden.
  • This is the essence of panopticism.
  • Now imagine a sports team,
  • or a jazz band.
  • Each member of the team perceives everyone else,
  • and can coordinate with them.
  • But most importantly of all...
  • everyone has a sense of the emerging whole,
  • and can adjust their actions for the greatest fit.
  • This is holopticism.
