TSA Art Fun: The Physiognomic Scrutinizer

11.26.10 Marina Galperina

While we’re picking between pronoscans and grope-downs, people of the Netherlands are laughing up this TSA thing at the STRP art fest with Marnix de Nijs’s installation The Physiognomic Scrutinizer. As you proceed through the scanner, the computer matches your mug to 1 of 250 notorious personalities in its database — serial killers, celebrity druggies, etc. — and then recites all your deeds to the public. It’s a hoot!
