Montreal's Creepy One Eye/Pyramid Face & Fingerprint Recognition Street Booth

This is a “art” exhibit called the “Compassion Machine” launched by the Ensemble Ensemble group back in 2017.

The National Film Board of Canada even produced a video explaining the artistic intention behind the machine. As a response to the “everyday suspicion” brought upon by mass surveillance, The Compassion Machine aims to give people a “personalized prediction” of their likelihood to do good.( SOURCE HERE )

I think it’s a desensitization-predictive programming type tactic under the guise of ‘art’ before the eventual roll out of this type of surveillance tech imo.

What do you think?
