While the position of the viewpoint inside the aPanopticon changes - up/down, left/right, the distance and angle of view is constant. This is fairly obvious and straightforward when looking at small, solid objects. However, it does change the experience of looking at transparent or translucent objects. In the normal viewing situation as a viewer changes their relative angle (for instance, walking around a plinth) the view through, and experience of, a transparent object changes as different objects or backgrounds can be seen. This can be exploited, but can be detrimental if the artist does not have complete control over the surroundings (positioning, lighting, extraneous objects) of a work.
