Anti-Surveillance Clothing Fights Against Facial Recognition

Designers in a fightback against intrusive technology are creating textiles and clothing that computers recognize as a face. They aim to make printing patterns that mislead face recognition software, a technology rapidly spreading across industries. For example, Facebook, Google and Apple use face scans to tag photos, while Amazon adds your face to your shopping experience. The Hyperface project, led by Berlin-based artist Adam Harvey, prints patterns onto textiles with mouths, eyes and more to confuse computers face recognition.
