Words by Guy Debord from The Society of the Spectacle

“Our society is not one of spectacle, but one of surveillance; under the surface of images, one invests bodies in depth”

“For one whom the real world becomes real images, mere images are transformed into real beings....... the most abstract of the senses, and the most easily deceived, sight is naturally the most readily adaptable to present-day society’s generalised abstraction.”
