Antisurveillance face camouflage

‘CV dazzle’ keeps facial-recognition algorithms from seeing a face. The technique takes its name from the dazzle camouflage of the two World Wars: The Great Power navies sought to protect their ships not by hiding them among the waves but by obscuring their size and movement.


Examples of CV dazzle makeup from Adam Harvey’s “Look Book.” (More here.)

CV dazzle was developed by the artist, designer, and entrepreneur, Adam Harvey, who created the patterns as a student at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program.
