Will Future Surveillance Technology Inspire Cyber Punk Fashion Trends?

Artist and activist Adam Harvey has intensively studied facial recognition software with the hopes of understanding how it can be undermined. In his research, Harvey has discovered that people can trick facial recognition technology by adapting certain types of fashion trends that make their face asymmetrical and by covering certain key areas of the face that these programs are designed to detect.

Ironically, these fashion trends look a lot like those seen in the dystopian “cyber-punk” films of the 1980′s and 1990′s. In films like Blade Runner for example, characters are seen with asymmetrical hairstyles and randomly applied facial make up. These fashion trends can be seen throughout the whole genre of dystopian science fiction movies, and although the reason for this fashion was never explicitly explained, it seems that this may be one aspect of the future that was predicted accurately.
