“Fashion can be used as camouflage from face-detection technology.”
I was inspired by the work of Adam Harvey (at ahprojects.com) who has investigated various mechanisms for “how fashion can be used as camouflage from face-detection technology, the first step in automated face recognition.”
In particular I was fascinated by the “false-face computer vision camouflage patterns” which I found beautiful - regardless of how/if the reverse training tech worked. (The CVdazzle project is interesting as well.)
I then recreated similar randomly-generated fractally-scaled facial patterns using one of my go-to creativity tools contextfree.
Finally I used the online custom fabric-printing / clothing-design service Contrado.com to create a slick hoodie with my personalized urban camo pattern. Side note: it was unbelievably quick-and-easy to create this multi-fabric design using Contrado - highly recommended!
