The digital revolution brought with it changes to the way we live and work. It also changed the way governments worldwide observe their citizens and enemies. From social experiments on Facebook and big corporates like Huawei installing back doors in their software, to politicians pushing for ‘net neutrality’ to allow governments to obtain sensitive user data, digital surveillance has never been more rife. Wesley Swanepoel’s Googly Eyes is commentary on a very real Orwellian 1984 situation – happening right now.
