Reframing The Face

A workshop on facial recognition, emotion recognition, and adversarial tactics, informed by case studies, ideas and research developed in the fields of technology, law, visual culture, cosmetics, media theory, and military camouflage.

Through exercises and discussions, we will also confront the human assumptions encoded in algorithms, discuss how machine vision shapes the definition of being human, and find ways to reframe and retrain the ways we see and understand the face.

Includes an introduction on making face filters.
