Pixelhead Mask: Creepy Anonymity

by Lambert Varias

Going to a costume party? With Martin Backes’ Pixelhead mask, you can dress up as a Minecraft character, an anonymous source or a Photoshop file. And if you get wasted and cause a ruckus, your blurry features should offer you some sort of protection. It’ll make for one hell of a police sketch.

To make the mask even creepier, the blurred face belongs to a real person – Hans-Peter Friedrich, Germany’s Minister of the Interior. Backes made the mask as a reaction to our privacy concerns – everyone has a camera and uploading media online for millions to see takes just a few clicks. One day you’re an ordinary German politician, the next you’re trending as a pixelated mask.

Martin Backes only made 333 copies of his wearable artwork. You know the formula: (art + limited edition) x Hans-Peter Friedrich = expensive. You’ll have to pay Backes €158 (~$192 USD) to get your own Pixelhead mask.
