How camouflage can be used to outwit automatic facial recognition.
Jan Pautsch: “CV Dazzle is a creative response to the phenomenon of omnipresent technological surveillance. Essential facial features are altered by means of makeup and special hairstyling, thus confusing automatic facial recognition systems. To date, this form of camouflage has been used to ‘cloak’ military objects, protecting them from spy satellites. Will, I wonder, CV Dazzle now unleash a wave of camouflage makeup in the urban hipster cult?”
