Walk This Way
Inspired by themes of surveillance and control in the current exhibition by Heba Y. Amin, join artists and activists The Dazzle Club to design and make your own apparel in order to frustrate gait recognition technology.
Use everyday materials in this accessible workshop to make wearable appendages and shape shifting clothing, and then take a walk around the local area to investigate the surveillance environment of West London. This workshop will include a short presentation by the artists on gait and facial recognition and the CV Dazzle approach to surveillance subversion.
The Dazzle Club is a London-based group of artists-activists performing in public space with dazzle camouflage to challenge new surveillance technologies such as facial recognition and to fight racial bias. The members organise silent walks while wearing assymetrical makeup in patters to prevent their faces being matched on any database.
