Enjoy an unusual interactive workshop inspired by themes of surveillance with artists and activists The Dazzle Club. Learn how to design and make your own wearable apparel to frustrate gait recognition, the technology used to recognise us by movement.
The Dazzle Club will show you how to use everyday materials to make wearable appendages and shape shifting clothing, in this workshop which investigates the surveillance environment and how to frustrate surveillance tools. This workshop will include a short presentation by the artists on gait and facial recognition and the CV Dazzle approach to surveillance subversion. You’ll be supported to make your own designs and share them together in this online workshop.
This is part of The Mosaic Rooms online event programme which explores the themes of Heba Y. Amin’s exhibition When I see the future I close my eyes. One of the themes Amin explores is surveillance, The Mosaic Rooms invited The Dazzle Club to show how we can take control through fun design hacks.
