This initial gallery of processed faces are of volunteers who attended the 2019 Digital Humanities Summer Institute in Victoria, British Columbia. For each pair of portraits, the face on the left represents the amount of agency that the individual wants over their facial data; the face on the right is the amount of agency that the individual likely has over their facial data. The basic idea is that the more obscured a person’s face is, the more control there is over that face’s data representation; conversely, the more clear it is, the more susceptible it is to forces that erode that face’s data agency.
