Since the beginning of history, it is impossible to ignore the existence of a power that, besides the adventure of the life of mankind, is all together with us, is constantly changing, brings benefits from time to time and has been created by man, and has always existed. This power is the concept of ‘powerism’ The concept of power, depending on the philosophies developed in many different periods, is a reality that will never disappear even if it changes form. The power, chiefly the chieftain of the early ages, is an invisible but much larger power today. This power is aware of every development in the world and is even the creator and observer of these developments.
The artist bases the concept of ‘powerism’ on the metaphor of street play played by children. In the content of the game, children play that they are growing up and have a say. It shows that when children play this game, it actually turns into a game metaphor for the moment we live. The tomato paste cans become a symbolic power mechanism and show how the future society structure takes shape. Foucault evaluates the changing understanding of the power of our time with the Panopticon metaphor, a designed structure. This work was discussed in the context of various visual indicators produced by sociologists such as Foucault and Althusser.
