This image transposes the prosthetic mask provided by URME Surveillance to protect against being detected by facial recognition cameras. The well known collage, made in 1935 by Dora Maar, is called “Untitled – photograph for an advertisement”.
Surveillance cameras with facial recognition capacity are reported as being used in London’s King Cross area. Bigbrotherwatch is leading a campaign against the dangerous expansion of use of biometric “faceprinting” technology.
