The installation DSM – Digital Surveillance Model is a concept inspired by the Panopticon, designed by Jeremy Bentham in 1791, and by the metaphor of invisible power explored in the years following its creation. In DSM, the idea of a digital eye designed for surveillance transforms into an ear assigned to the perception of surveillance, where the end-user becomes an external element and at the same time an individual involved within.
The sounds which compose the articulations of DSM have been recorded in the field, inside the prison of Sollicciano in Florence, by Valeria Muledda and other field recordists within the “Le paysage sonore dans lequel nous vivons” European project, guided by Tempo Reale with four international partners (GMVL; Amici della Musica di Cagliari; AFEA/Festival DEM; EPHMEE).
DSM describes detention spaces through the paradox of a fruition which is completely free of constraints, favouring the ear as the exclusive receiver of a model which, like the Panopticon itself, is quintessentially visual.
