Pickle Subculture 2019
Be in a pickle, unknown you!
Pickle is a sub-culture that wears masks to disturb facial recognition tools,
believing in the human brain as a more powerful tool than artificial inteligence.
Questioning on our attitude towards this system,
we ask for being critical on this society that is dependent on virtual data.
Identifying ourselves, we designed masks that display us without being judged with the binary eyes (artificial intelligence).
“We are playful and unpredictable. We often make fun of the big data,
especially if it is pompous and condescending.
But it doesn’t mean that we want to stop sending data to it or not using the digital anymore.
We just don’t want to follow it without consciousness."
