It's still freezing here in NYC, and having just come back inside, my exposed face feels like I shaved with gasoline.
Few weeks ago I wrote a post lamenting the unfriendly look of ski masks. In response, Brooklyn-based hackmistress Becky Stern sent us a link to artist Andrew Salomone's recently updated ID-Preserving Balaclava.
Salomone photographed his own head from multiple angles, blended them into a single image in Photoshop, and created a bitmap file of the image. He then used Stern's hacktacular Electronic Knitting Machine to "plot" the file, as it were, into cotton yarn.
Is the resultant mask cool? Heck yes. Does it solve my "scary" problem? Heck no! This look still says "I am always one step ahead of the cops."
Have a look at Stern's machine:
