Kings Cultural Institute

The creative team of 1984  and Headlong's associate artist, Sarah Grochala, have been collaborating with academics from King’s College London to ask the question: if Big Brother is always watching, how is he watching us now? Together they have been exploring the relationship between the systems of surveillance described in Orwell’s novel and the operation of surveillance in contemporary Britain.
