Photographing Big Brother

The concept behind Cynthia Greig's photography might be called "cute"--she photographs normal-scale people manipulating miniature objects--but the result, to me, hints at political critique in the age of warrantless wiretapping, surveillance mania, elections promised to be "delivered" by Diebold's director, and wars fought remotely as if by a president controlling puppets. Perhaps I'm seeing "Big Brother" too literally?
