Similar to a Guy Fawkes mask, this anti-surveillance device takes a political stand against facial recognition. URME Surveillance founder Leo Selvaggio took the idea of the Guy Fawkes mask and used his own face to help the public hide from security cameras in the name of privacy. Hailing from Chicago, the most heavily surveilled city in the United States, the artist made masks of his own face so people could conceal their identities.
This anti-surveillance device is currently being funded as an Indiegogo project so Selvaggio can sell the product at cost. He cares so passionately about the right to privacy, he will not be taking a profit from the masks. He is hoping to raise more awareness about the issue.
