Made of brass, Incognito features three shapes that fit your face. An elongated polygon rests between your eyebrows and spans the height of your forehead while two circles cover either cheekbone. Each shape is connected by a strand of wire that also secures the mask—it fits over your ears like a pair of glasses.
When worn, Incognito really works. “This project was preceded by a long-term study on the shape, size, and location of mask elements so that it actually fulfills its task,” Nowak writes. “When testing solutions, I used the DeepFace algorithm, which is used by Facebook.” The polished pieces on the face deflect the software used to track you while in public as well as through social media.
Designer Ewa Nowak has created a way for you to avoid facial recognition.
