Facial Weaponization Suite produces forms of protest against biometric facial recognition — and the inequalities these technologies propagate — by making “collective masks” in community-based workshops that are modeled from the aggregated facial data of participants. The masks are used for public interventions and performances. One mask, the Fag Face Mask, is a response to scientific studies that link determining sexual orientation through rapid facial recognition techniques. This mask is generated from the biometric facial data of many queer men’s faces, resulting in an amorphous mask that cannot be detected by biometric facial recognition technologies.
