I love it! Jessica Ware of The Local reports:

A German artist has created a pixellated balaclava, perfect for confusing street cameras in a nation where mistrust of public surveillance is widespread even as the appetite for Facebook is unabated. Martin Backes spoke to The Local.

Backes, a digital media artist among many other things, says he has created “media camouflage for the internet age” and a solution for people “sick of photos on sites like Facebook or worried about showing up on Streetview.”

Read more on The Local. You can also read more about Pixelhead on the artist’s web site. He first introduced Pixelhead in 2010 but has been refining it since then.
