Fillip / Exhaustive Images : Surveillance, Sovereignty, and Subjectivity in Google Maps Street View (Gabrielle Moser)Further expanding the already large class of Foucauldian apparatuses, I shall call an apparatus literally anything that has in some way the capacity to capture, orient, determine, intercept, model, control, or secure the gestures, behaviors, opinions, or discourses of living beings. —Giorgio Agamben
Simulacrum ( plural : simulacra ), from Latin : simulacrum which means "likeness, similarity", [ 1 ] was first recorded in the English language in the late 16th century, used to describe a representation, such as a statue or a painting, especially of a god. By the late 19th century, it had gathered a secondary association of inferiority: an image without the substance or qualities of the original. [ 2 ] Philosopher Fredric Jameson offers photorealism as an example of artistic simulacrum, where a painting is sometimes created by copying a photograph that is itself a copy of the real. [ 3 ] Other art forms that play with simulacra include Trompe l'oeil , [ 4 ] Pop Art , Italian neorealism and the French New Wave . [ 3 ]
