Martin Backes, 'Pixelhead', 03.02. - 27.02.2015

The full face mask Pixelhead acts as media camouflage, completely shielding the head
to ensure
that your face is not recognizable on photographs taken in public places without securing permission.

A simple piece of fabric creates a little piece of anonymity for the Internet age. The material used is elastic fabric for beach fashion and sports gear with a fashionable Pixel-style print of German Secretary of the Interior Hans-Peter Friedrich. The mask has holes for your eyes and mouth, so you can see and breathe comfortably while wearing the mask, secure in the knowledge that your image won’t be showing up anywhere you don’t want it to.
