Short-Circuit Control is a lens based performance series, consisting of five short moving image pieces that explore Foucauldian theories of power and societal control. The title and concept were found within an interview with Genesis P. Orridge, who recalls a conversation they once had with author William Burroughs, who says to P. Orridge “Your job is to Short-Circuit Control”. This series aims to document the process of the subtle control that permeates society; from the surveillance of citizens, which stifles individuality, and makes happen docility and conforming behaviour, that leads to self governance and self discipline.
