Fukt #20, Faces

Editor: Bjorn Hegardt
Design: Arianne Spanier

As well as plenty of images of faces, we learn how artists are adding patterns to faces to disrupt face recognition software and about prosopagnosia (face blindness), a cognitive disorder which renders the sufferer unable to recognise faces.
