The Watched

in #art3 years ago


Watching the watchers of the watched

The drawing I'm sharing today is inspired by the @hardfork-series latest post CFS: Exposing the OverWatchers, and specifically the role of the OverWatchers.

“OverWatcher” is human surveiller. Also used for face-to-face interrogators

I imagined a dystopian future where every movement and interaction was monitored, it didn't take much imagination. How do we know who are the watchers? The days are filled with feelings of paranoia about who is listening and recordings our moves. We are always on the lookout. We start watching for the watchers as they watch the watched. Are we the watched, or are we becoming the watchers?

Don't forget to check out @hardfork-series and their post CFS: Exposing the OverWatchers.


I love the color palette and the emotionless countenances, very cool. "We start watching for the watchers as they watch the watched." As we listen to the twisted words and reasonings of the demagogues we become pawns in the game of groupthink and conformity... of control.

Great description of the work and ideas @clumsysilverdad

A pleasure to share my daily work here and with you.

In a strange way we are our own watchers!
And peace comes just when we are one, when there's a good connection and acceptance between me the watcher and me… the one being watched.

So if we become one... people to people...
We will feel free even if we are watched!

I'm watching you, @opheliafu!

Cz you're doing a great job with those words! 😊👍

I think the people who really need to watch it are celebrities like George Carlin and Prince, both of whom died of drug overdoses . . . allegedly. When celebrities criticize the PTB, their message reaches the ears of millions and the PTB don't like that. I hope David Chappelle understands this and shuts up. As for me, the watchers who really bug me are my nosy next door neighbors.

I suspect they may have a security camera covering their property, but incidentally viewing us too.

Are we nearing such future, @opheliafu? The guys from your painting look like robots.

It looks that way some days

great artwork!

Do they work for the NSA?

Interesting subject and theme! Who is the watcher who's watching the watchers? Maybe the watcher is important as the watched or maybe the watcher is watching himself. Ok, here it's late and maybe my thoughts are sleepy ;)

We could go round in circles with that thought :D

This series is good.

The painting is simple, but high value, unique and amazing 👍😊
