Abstract [en]

This thesis explores how power relations are reflected on society in the act of surveillance basedon Michel Foucault’s discourse in the light that events that happen in the arrangement of certaintime and place reveal the context in situation in history and things happen as a consequence ofsuch situational events even at the time when technology advances at a remarkable pace andstate-of-the-art technologies do not rest to surprise us.In that regard, I start by presenting motivation and historical background of surveillance. Then Idescribe current surveillance technology and state in three aspect; biometrics which is adominating off-line surveillance methodology, internet which is a dominating on-line surveillanceframeset, and the centralization of big data for the utilization of these all. Then I analyze socialcondition for surveillance by investigating current and recent history, the impact ofscience/technology on society, and how the mindset and culture of contemporary times hasformed itself. In the conclusion and discussion, I analyze what will happen if such trend ofmachine culture continues and present suggestion about what can be done.
