Facial Weaponization Suite develops “collective masks” in community-based workshops as forms of aesthetic resistance against biometric facial recognition and the inequalities these technologies propagate. One mask in the suite, 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 technologies.
