The goal of FaceGlitch is to make us question our understanding of digital private life through tracking facial technology.

The experiment allows its users to anonymise themselves by “glitching” their face. In an amusing way, FaceGlitch denounces the spreading of cyber surveillance and attempts to remedy this invasion of privacy. The Glitch is a tool of cyber activism and allows us to question the erosion and corruption of data.
