The Triangle Space Chelsea College of Arts, 16 John Islip Street, London

The second in the Ghosts series of single works is Alia Syed’s film Panoptican Letters: Missive 1, which combines her interest in storytelling with a compelling presentation of history as a visual narrative. Set against the technical descriptions of architectural plans for an ideal prison, ‘The Panopticon’, by British philosopher and social reformer, Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832), the film is composed of sounds and images of sky and water following the course of the Thames in London.
