- URME Surveillance — Leonardo Selvaggio
The principle method is by inviting the public to wear a photo-realistic, 3D-printed prosthetic of my face. When a user dons the prosthetic, camera systems equipped with facial recognition software identify that user as myself, thus attributing all of their actions to the identity known as “Leo Selvaggio.” In this way, wearers of the prosthetic safeguard their own identities by performing my persona in surveilled areas.
- Facial Weaponization Suite | Zach Blas
Facial Weaponization Suite protests against biometric facial recognition–and the inequalities these technologies propagate–by making “collective masks” in workshops that are modeled from the aggregated facial data of participants, resulting in amorphous masks that cannot be detected as human faces by biometric facial recognition technologies. The masks are used for public interventions and performances.
–I wonder about making masks that do weird things to programming that make scanning more costly programmatically, or create data that’s really large for storage etc.
- Can we use a smartwatch for coastal monitoring and research? | Experiment
Smartwatches contain sensors already used by scientists to study the ocean, like a GPS, barometer, and thermometer. This project aims to measure the physical properties of the coastal ocean by turning smartwatches into smart sensors. We will create an app to measure, view and share data, then test the sensors against commercially available sensors to determine if they can be used for research and monitoring the coastal ocean.
