Hello! This series is very powerful! In Brave New World, Orwell describes a society consumed by distractions, one in which citizens are united through their irrelevant pursuits and indulgences. Here, your accompanying text from the book reads “…Everyone belongs to everyone else.” These pieces immediately made me think of the more recent dystopian novel The Circle, by Dave Eggers. His book similarly envisions a society that strives for total equality through transparency: “sharing is caring” and “secrets are lies.” In his book, I imagine “the circle” is intended as a symbol of a complete and unified society in which everyone knows everything about everyone else. But a circle can also represent something closed, restrictive, and in your pieces the circle also brings to mind a lens though which events and people are watched or surveilled. I would love to know what the circles that appear in these pieces represent to you.
