In this article, I tried to examine the equivalences of different visual regimes, from the invention of perspective to digitally created images. Information control, society and power 21st Century. Orwell’s Big Brother in the contemporary society entered our lives as a metaphor through surveillance cameras. We live our life conscious that we are being watched. Moreover, we are both watched and watching through Internet technologies. How does the knowledge of being watched impact our lives? The control of information and people through censorship is still created through governmental pressure on the media. So, could the Huxley’s ‘soma’ met with mass media tools, which appear to acknowledge only through its pleasure content? How do mechanically reproduced visuals, which situate the world beyond the human eye level? on a different level from a point of human eye, impact ties with reality? I will strive to answer these questions.
