Tricking Biometrics

Every day millions of people upload personal data when registering for websites, services and shops. In fact it’s quite hard to stay anonymous on the internet. Biometric recognition is increasingly used to validate these data; our physical identity is becoming a ticket to enter sites. Alix Gallet offers a solution for those who cherish their privacy. With a fake nose, ears, fingertips, or an all-covering cloak, you can pretend to be someone else. “I want to show the absurdity of it all,” says Alix. “Let’s try to trick the machines by misplacing, multiplying, hiding and faking our biometrics.”
