Week 9 Reflection

Redaction and facial recognition certainly relate to security. In one the text is blackened for security and in the other we lose some security as computer programs are able to recognise us in crowds. I find it worrying how much is being spent in this field and wonder how long before we start seeing any of the negative side. At the moment we can untick this option on Facebook.

Face finding was more fun to explore – its almost like looking at clouds again. I’ve been seeing faces for years in patterns – but I’ve also been a face-watcher for years since my mother took me to an art show and to deal with my boredom she sat me down outside on the stairs and told me to watch people instead. They were more interesting to me and I haven’t stopped.
