Neo-Paris 2084,
Augmented reality and memory manipulation have taken control of peoples’ lives.
You can now digitize, buy, sell or trade your own personal memories. The last remainders of intimacy have been swept away, in what appears to be a simple extension of the development of social networks and geolocation at the beginning of the 21st century.
The “surveillance society” has been accepted by the citizens themselves, in exchange for a few technological benefits. It is a reality that no one even thinks of challenging anymore.
This memory-based economy gives an immense yet uncontrollable power to a handful of people…

At the risk of sounding insensitive, I'll review the picture first, then the description - this is an art website, after all...

The mist is absolutely incredible, it gives a real sense of depth very quickly thanks to how the foreground objects are sillhouettes compared to the obscured shadows in the background. The lonely aircraft drifting over the scene gives a general feel of surveillance as it is alone, without the text.

As for the backstory itself, unfortunately, I can honestly say that I don't find the concept too far fetched. It's not a matter of if for me, it's when. Naturally, it's a striking piece, and would work out very well as a full fiction - which I am sure it actually is, I've only seen this picture once, and haven't done much scouting around about it.

Long story short, I like this. A lot. It's absolutely remarkable.

Hmm, the use of such cranial technologies is fraught with many fragilities. It is an easy step from freedom to the totalirians nations that can be seen in 1984 - 'are YOU a thought criminal'.
