THE MIRRORBALL AS PANOPTICON

2
The mirrorball is an ornamental staple in many concert spaces and is a symbol of
 pure potential. With its aesthetic achievement of total reciprocity between subject
 and environment, it is thus the closest the Now Age comes to accessing a deity.
 The subject of its form is wholly dependent on its reflection of the environment
 as it unfolds at that moment, in real time. Thus it is and always will be in service
 of the Now World. It can illuminate the darkest of rooms, but contains no light
 of its own. The possibilities for space to reflect are infinite, and yet its form is
 finite. It sees all, but does not seek to interfere, only reflect light into the void it is
 suspended in… the Now Age Panopticon.
