Prison de verre is an video installation playing with the notion of panoptisme and look.

Two women are moving in a close place. Each side is a wall made with glass, where they can see their own reflect. Wherever they go they are always shooting.

The two camera are in both side and filmed like a mirror. With the two films the whole place is shooting, there is no blind spot to be hide.
