This is the first time it happens since I started “interacting” with Bentham’s Auto-Icon. When I arrived today to deliver the message, the glass case doors were shut and there was no signs indicating the reasons.
Luckily, Panopticam’s webcam stands outside, on the top of the case. So, although Jeremy’s eyes were shut by the closed doors, his cyborg electronic eyes were fully operational!
Jeremy Bentham’s glass case with shut doors
This is getting very complicated. Just when I thought there was nothing else to post here in 2015 (yes, I’ll take a break until January 4th, since the university will be closed and Jeremy will be unaccessible), I received the image below, adding more confusion to the whole watching the watchers thing (see here for more on this).
So, I guess I was being watched while I was watching Jeremy, watching me, watching him…
Merry Christmas and happy new year. “See” you in 2016, Jeremy!
Day 50: Being watched…

What does Jeremy see? The message today was inspired by ideas on what watchers see. A little bit of this is discussed in my paper “Eyes of glass: watching the watchers”, hence the reference…
Day 50: How does the world look like through your “eyes of glass”?
I am usually very shy, so this one was a very difficult message to deliver. This is getting serious, isn’t it, Jeremy?!
Day 25: Jeremy, do I look like you, while I look at you, looking at me, looking at you?
