Martin Backes's "Pixelhead" is a mask that looks like a pixellated face that's been through the automatic privacy feature in Google Streetview. It's pretty dazzle-paint-y and hard on the eyes.
The full face mask Pixelhead acts as media camouflage, completely shielding the head to ensure that your face is not recognizable on photographs taken in public places without securing permission. A simple piece of fabric creates a little piece of anonymity for the Internet age. The material used is stretch satin with a fashionable Pixel-style print of German Secretary of the Interior Thomas de Maizière. The mask has two holes for your eyes, so you can see and breathe comfortably while wearing the mask, secure in the knowledge that your image won't be showing up anywhere you don't want it to.
