Watching Me, Watching You
Watching Me, Watching You is inspired by Panopticon: the consciousness of permanent visibility as a form of power and manipulation, without the need for physical restraints or barriers.
A psychiatric nurse for 10 years, Andrew Brown has developed an insight into the cognitive processes of the human mind. Utilising digital and analogue techniques, including a Polaroid SX-70 or Diana toy camera has assisted the artist to capture serendipitous results from poor aesthetic photography. This method has encouraged Andrew Brown to compose and structure images in a measured manner while concentrating on psychological meanings rather than technical aesthetics.
