7:30-8:30pm – Anti-surveillance makeup workshop
8:30-10:30pm – Screening of The Matrix
Learn how to hide from the machines! Use makeup to thwart State-of-the-art facial recognition algorithms and surveillance technologies. One-hour workshop will include makeup tutorials and techniques for 21st-century urban camouflage, to make sure you can move freely throughout the city without being identified, and look pretty bad-ass while doing so. Following the workshop will be a screening of The Matrix, the first in our Cyberpunk Movie Series. Snacks, refreshments, pillows, and makeup will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Cyberpunk and Matrix character costumes are encouraged!
This is the second event of the once-a-month Open Tech Lab series, co-organized with The Processing Foundation, to bring issues of technology, the internet, and coding into intersectional-feminist and anti-racist practice.
