With the use of facial recognition technology on the rise, privacy advocates are increasingly concerned about the potential for misuse. Artist Adam Harvey is working to show how fashion can be used to fool facial recognition technology. His most recent project, CV Dazzle, is a scarf with fabric that looks like camouflage but contains elements that mimic a human face. These elements can successfully confuse the software and make identification much more difficult. While everyone might not be willing to rock such a bold fashion statement, Harvey's work raises important questions about personal privacy.
