A person might be able to tell who they are talking to thanks to the Identity Preserving Balaclava, but I fear that the wearer might not be able to determine who's in front of them since there are no eye holes. Of course, this fact doesn't really matter considering that this piece is more art than anything else.

Created by Andrew Salomone, the Identity Preserving Balaclava was made using an electronic knitting machine. By Photoshopping every angle of his head, the images were created and then stitched together to form a bitmap file that acted as the knitting template.
