Antibodies (recognzing faces)

Brief description

The user is invited to join a never-ending video call. When entering the artwork the webcam captures the users face (if visible and detected). The users face appears in different grid compositions covered with meshes, lines and blobs that we associate to facial recognition. Hence we can assume that the users face is analyzed. However as in many video call programs we are unaware of the intent or how our faces and behavior is analyzed and used. When the user turns from the default you-mode to them-mode other users appear in various grid compositions also faces covered with facial recognition meshes. User can therefore assume that they are also being recorded and might appear in the "them" database.
