Life of Digital Double

Grochala, Sarah (2014) Life of Digital Double. Nam June Paik Reader (5). pp. 136-151. ISSN 2092-9315

This article explores the processes behind the creation of Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984. It also examines the processes behind the creation of the 1984 Digital Double App and Michael Takeo Magruder’s PRISM which were inspired by the production. The article argues that while Orwell tackles the subject of surveillance in 1984, contemporary surveillance takes the form of ‘sous-veillance’ where subjects voluntarily watch themselves instead of being watched over those in authority.
