L.M. Bogad and J. Stahl are agents with the U.S.A.’s National Security Agency. Their mission: to present the latest export from the Good Northern Neighbor: The Panopticock™ along with its accoutrement, the FouCock Ring™. This cutting edge technology mobilizes mass kink to deeply penetrate every market and subculture for state surveillance.
The Panopticock™: An Immodest Proposal
This performance provides embedded and eccentric commentary on state omni-surveillance of dissident bodies. By satirically suggesting a Federal marketing strategy which targets the universal allure of voyeurism, the NSA becomes a dominant and ever-present “other” lover which infiltrates through pseudo-complicity and the cooptation of our desire.
