Quoting Orwell

“Always eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or bed- no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres in your skull.” 

George Orwell, 1984 pt1 section2 [ p25, penguin ed.]

Front cover

The Target series has been produced in response to state surveillance, both on our streets and in cyberspace; tracking our footprints through both. That few cubic centimetres becomes more important with  each day that passes.”
