Artist Zach Blas’ “Face Cage” Helps You Beat the Government’s Facial Recognition Software

From Complex.com:

People may not be talking about it as much these days, but the government is still watching you and keeping a list, just like Santa Claus, only less jolly. Artists have been designing interesting ways to help the public avoid the eagle eye of the government, including ”Stealthwear” from artist Adam Harvey and fashion designer Johanna Bloomfield. The latest in anti-surveillance gear is something that looks like it belongs in a DC Comics fan-fiction film, but it gets the job done in terms of shielding your identity from all of the facial recognition cameras out in the world.

We talk to Jamie Keenan about Turd Theory and designing exceptional book covers

From It’s Nice That.com:

ranz Kafka, Vladimir Nabokov, Nick Hornby, T.S Elliot, Richard Dawkins, Ian Banks and Martin Amis – what ties them all together (aside from their stratospheric levels of success in the literary world)?
