In this workshop, mask-making is explored as a queer and feminist resistant practice against emerging forms of biometric facial recognition and digital surveillance. During our first meeting, we will discuss the social and political impact of biometric technologies in global and local contexts as well as imperceptible revolt tactics through pre-circulated readings. Biometric facial data will be gathered on all participants through Kinect face scanning. We also discuss possible interventions and actions to perform with the mask.
