Venue(s):


Creation Year:

    2014

    Intervention, 3D Printed Masks

Artist Statement:


    URME Surveillance creates photorealistic 3D-printed prosthetics of the artist’s face in order to protect the public from facial recognition software. When worn in public, cameras identify the wearer and their actions as belonging to the artist, so that the artist’s identity becomes kind of defense technology. URME Surveillance challenges the public to consider relationships between identity and technology while disrupting highly networked surveillance systems through disinformation.
