I wanted to represent the idea of Big Brother as an ever-present, oppressive force. The small figure (bottom left side) represents Winston Smith, the protagonist who works as a clerk in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth. The space he occupies in this design represents a corridor within the Ministry but also illustrates how he is under the constraint and confinement of this larger figure/symbol (Big Brother). Although he is free to go where he pleases, he is under the constant watchful eye of Big Brother. He is not really a free man.
