  • Holopticism

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