According to Gilles Deleuze, the main idea of societies of control in his postscript is about the changes of format of society from the past to the present and then to the future. Also, it shows the limitation to traditional cognition mode and encourages people face to uncertainties bravely to adapt to the real word creatively. To a certain extend, Gilles puts desire as the strong power of free flow of producing and the difference as the essence of life.
From Gilles’ perspective, family, school and barracks are seen as cages rather than a freedom land, because there is a specific discipline which is must be followed for each one. All of these places look like a free and holy place but actually is not. As a result, people are restrained and only do things mechanically again and again. But why the prison is still existed in modern society of control?
About control, that is contained in adaptability. Also, that be can seen as modulation. For instance, control is equal to mathematic formulation and there is a plenty of variabilities (modulation) for a certain aim (outcome) via different ways and keeping modulating and changing it.
In modern society under the control, there are lots of things that people are unable to grasp and seize, because there is a transferable feature of status. Different things are able to co-exixt in a certain situation, and those things are mutually working. In art design areas, especially for the process of creating an artwork, design freely is important for designers to do what they want to to rather than restricted in a realm. Design could be a versatile way that combing various knowledge to create an outcome that reflecting the real world.
