Think you can outsmart facial recognition? In this workshop, participants will design and construct masks and headpieces inspired by CV Dazzle, a project by artist Adam Harvey that provides information and tips for creating “looks” that can camouflage the face from face detection technology. Using elements such as asymmetry, tonal inverse and the concealment of certain facial features, you will be able to learn and test which design combinations are most effective in hiding from facial recognition technology.
