Of the three “anti-drone” pieces, two are inspired by Muslim dress. “Conceptually, these garments align themselves with the rationale behind the traditional hijab and burqa: to act as “the veil which separates man or the world from God,” replacing God with drone,” Harvey writes on his website.
Last year, Harvey designed a type of camouflage makeup for fooling face-recognition software.
“Stealth Wear” is just the latest result of Harvey’s ongoing quest for privacy in an increasingly public world. In 2012, he produced “CV Dazzle,” a type of camouflage makeup for fooling face-recognition software. Harvey described it then as a way of “hiding in plain sight using ambiguously deceptive fashion.”
Want to observe Harvey’s work up close? The garments will be on display at Primitive London through the end of the month.
